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.
