Wordpress Visual/Html Editor for posts/pages not working

When i edit any page or post, the visual and html tabs do not work. The text in the body field shows up as white, and to see anything i have to select all the text. The selected text also shows up as html mode. It looks like its stuck in html mode for all edits.

Have you added any plugins recently?

No. It works fine with all my plugins. I made sure because i blew away my whole database last time and found it was only a plugin issue. so that was the first thing i made sure of.

Does that mean you tested by disabling all plugins?

Ok.  Have you customized the core WordPress files at all or is a reinstall a viable option?  If you haven't hacked the core files, back up your Theme and Plugins and then go to Dashboard | Updates and reinstall WordPress from the button there.

Have you ensure that you unchecked the 'disable' visual editor in your user account settings?

see screenshot.

Go to /wp-admin/

click 'users'

then click on your account and the FIRST check box does that.

Was that it?

no it wasn't the visual editor. The screen still showed the visual and html tabs, but all the text was white.

Charles,

Where are you hosting this stuff?  You really shouldn't have to keep blowing the DB away.  I have 20-30 WP sites at the moment and I've yet to have to resort to thermonuclear tactics...
