I've looked everywhere in SE for a solution, nothing seems to be working. For no obvious reason cycles rendering is not working, as you can see in the screenshot, here's what I've tried to do:

  1. check/uncheck sequencer in post processing tab.
  2. changing between global and local view.
  3. switching between layers.

is there anything else I can try? enter image description here

here's the blend file:

  • $\begingroup$ I cannot check the .Blend right now, however make sure your render layers are set up. blender.org/manual/render/post_process/layers.html $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 17, 2016 at 11:36

your camera is pointing to nothing... if you press numpad 0, you see why you get that "empty" render...

select the camera and press CTRL + numpad 0, you now see the selected camera points to the scene objects, then hit F12, you get what you expected:

update

here's the result after appending all object and actions from your file into a blank new file

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you so much for your help, but when I press animation the problem persists, pressing Ctrl+ F12 works fine but the button shows the same problem $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 18, 2016 at 9:49

    $\begingroup$ ...this is really weird... F12 and CTRL+F12 work, but hitting "render" and "animation" not....?!? I guess this file could have become corrupted, I tried this: open a new file, delete all, append all objects from the old file... it seems to behave well... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ you can append actions also... I edited the post showing the "animation" button works in this way... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you so much, but now the rendering is all messed up right now, it looks jerky with a lot of noise... $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 18, 2016 at 11:16

    $\begingroup$ yes, sorry, I set 10% resolution and 32 render samples to speed up the animation render... :) it was 128 samples before... $\endgroup$

I was having the same problem, maybe for different reasons, but it might help other people. I had an animation strip from a previous project on the video editor, deleting the stuff that was on the video editor solved it
