Front light on MBL keeps blinking but won't connect to network Help

Hi there

I have a 2010 MBL that worked fine up to about 6 months ago. Now can’t access it in any form. The disc is clearly spinning and the front light is blinking green constantly, which means I think that I can’t disconnect it. Does anyone know how I can retrieve my data from it? I have tried connecting it directly to my Mac via ethernet and manually setting the IP address, but without success. Also bought Recoverit software but that doesn’t recognise it on network or system so can’t access it. Pulling my hair out here.
