    This is my device >> https://www.gsmarena.com/asus_fonepad_7_(2014)-6394.php

    I had purchased this tablet like 6 years back. After just 6 months while downloading "updates" it started complaining about lack of space. I rooted the device and installed a custom rom with the help of an Youtube video. No matter what I did it still kept complaining about lack of space. I got fed up & stopped using the device.
    Now when I try to boot I see the Intel logo and a straight line from top to bottom (please see attachment)
    Is it possible to fix this device ?

    OS on desktop : Ubuntu 20.04
    Please note that I don't use MS Windows or Mac on my PC. I use Linux only.

    So it doesn't get beyond the splash screen. But what happens then? Does it get stuck there, or does it shut off?

    If it gets stuck this may be a software problem, in which case booting into recovery and trying a factory reset might fix it. Or maybe it will need reflashing - it's really hard to know.

    If it powers down it probably means that the battery has degraded enough over 5.5 years or so in a drawer that it's not capable of powering the device. In which case this certainly isn't going to be worth repairing (if you can find anyone who is able to obtain the parts still).

    TBH it probably isn't worth putting a lot of effort into.

    Maybe it became corrupted and unbootable. Try installing the custom ROM again?
