Device is turned off, display isn't just very, very dark?

Are you sure the device charged properly?
(maybe the device charger cable is broken?)

So there's no progress bar at the bottom of the screen (which comes
shortly after rootfs is mounted)?  If not, this would most likely
be a problem either with mounting the rootfs or battery handling.

To cause bootup problems there should be also some (3rd party) root
process that fills the disk, user processes cannot fill the device
full enough to prevent boot.

I would also expect it to cause the device to enter reboot loop
if there's no space even for root to write anything.
