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***

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
