SharePoint 2013 - term store is not online

Collection is not loading and I get the following error:  "Error loading navigation: The operation is not valid because term store is not online".  

IIS has been reset and Managed metadata service is online.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,
just a guess but have you enabled Managed Navigation?
What happens if you open the Term Store Management Tool?
