So my Droid 2 died on me and went grey screen with lines. I can't see anything and I can't access my files.
Is there any way to maybe project the screen or access it so I can unlock the phone?

If your mobile screen is not working properly then use your mobile model PC suite to access files.Some Android devices require USB debugging option to work PC Suite.First only check your phone without debugging if it is not working then turn on USB debugging option and reconnect USB again to your PC.
Since you have adb debugging turned on, you should be able to use Droid@Screen from your PC to control your device over adb. There's nothing to install on your device, as long as the adb daemon is running.
Once you have that going, you can use the device from the PC as you would if the screen was working.
Also, if you know what files you're looking to pull off the device and how to navigate the Linux filesystem, you can grab them with 'adb pull ' from your PC. Again, this depends on USB debugging having already been turned on and previously used with the PC in question.
You can mirror thought mobile screen to your PC via certain apps. Check them out here. Try downloading Motorola PC Suite, it might help you.
