Old mp4 player data extraction

Hello guys,
I recently found an old MP4 digital player that I used to own way back and I remember it has a lot of pictures that i don't have backed up mostly family memories.
I stopped using this MP4 when it broke down and stopped turning on full, when I used to turn it own, the lock screen would show and I froze there.and I couldn't find anyone to repair it.
My question is that , is there a way to extract the data of it only? I don't want it to work again I just want to data and I don't know anything about it's hardware nor was I able to find a something online to help me.
So I was hoping you guys could.

So as I mentioned, when i plug it into the computer it cannot be seen since it gets stuck on the on screen when it turn on.

i cant see a clear model neither a flash storage or anything to give you a clear answer .. usually you should be able to get the data with a bit on tinkering .. maybe you can try to find out why it is not booting ?any errors or messages ?

No errors, nothing, it gives the turning on screen then a lock screen image that I used to have and it freezes.

IMHO this is a tough one.
Maybe someone with expert knowledge of chips and PCBs can tell you how to extract the data directly from the memory.

Re: Old mp4 player data extraction

well I once researched on how to extract data from an emmc chip (the storage chip for older phones) and it was relatively simple, you just needed to be very skilled in soldering as the pins are tiny, the chip here is not familiar to me however i recently came up upon this advertisement for skillful repairs in lebanon, check it out.
Try contacting them.
