Assuming that your display is the only problem, you should be able to connect your computer to an external display so you can see what you're doing, and then back it up normally.

Plug your time capsule in and boot the machine. Time machine should automatically back it up even if you can't see the screen. Give it a couple of hours to make sure it's completed. Now plug the capsule into another Mac and restore your data via Time Machine. This can also be done from a system installation disk.
