I don't know why but my sculpting does not work, I have tried other files and it works fine there. I have tried other objects in the same file and it works just fine, but this bear just doesn't work.

I do have added a subdivide modifier, so maybe that's the problem but when I applied it, it still did not work and when I deleted it it still didn't work. It looks like I didn't click the bear because it is so gray.

Could it be, that you accidentally turned on the mask?

You could try pressing Alt + M to clear it and see if you than can sculpt again.
