When you have accessed the database with phpMyadmin at jos_view_levels you should see this:
viewlevels.PNG
Click the edit icon on the left and make the values on right as shown.
***Always backup the database before editing a live site***
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so. Twain

Thanks! sorted my Blank Admin screen.
My default group had lost the 8 level:- (3 Special 3 [6,3])
Added it back in and up popped my toolbars.

When I was messing about with permissions I must have changed something.
I went into my database a changed the 'jos_viewlevels' back to there default values and now everything is back where it should be.

1 Public 0 [1]
2 Registered 1 [6,2,8]
3 Special 2 [6,3,8]

In Joomla 3.5 the table has differed name ?
I cant find it.

Hi oneski2006, many thanks for the hint on resetting viewer rights in the SQL database.
Without it there would have been many hours of trauma !!
What I did was look at a copy of my site for another client and copied out the viewing rights.
Not the same figures as yours but worked brilliantly Thanks

Figured it was a long shot. But... it worked on Joomla3.8.6
