How to Recover Lost Photos and Videos from Sony Xperia

Hello everyone. I do not know what happened wrong and my Xperia Z3 stopped with its touch. I am not able to tap and access anything except the power and volumes buttons. I think I have to visit service center to get this repaired. Before I do that I want to backup my photos and videos to my computer, but I found out that the DICM folder is empty after connected to the computer! So weird. Can I retrieve deleted photos from my phone? Any phone photo recovery or something like that recommended?
