I am running version 3.6.1. When i create a new page or a new object in a grid field the right pane in the CMS is solid gray. I have to fresh the page to get the content to actually come up. Any admin navigation also results in a gray right hand pane unless i hit refresh. I can't find any errors anywhere.

Have you checked your log file for error. try Silverstripe Error Handling to locate the exact error.

I have both silverstripe and PHP logging enabled, I think. Still no errors.

IN _config.php:
if(!Director::isDev()) {
// log errors and warnings
SS_Log::add_writer(new SS_LogFileWriter('../silverstripe-errors-warnings.log'), SS_Log::WARN, '<=');

// or just errors
SS_Log::add_writer(new SS_LogFileWriter('../silverstripe-errors.log'), SS_Log::ERR);

// or notices (e.g. for Deprecation Notifications)
SS_Log::add_writer(new SS_LogFileWriter('../silverstripe-errors-notices.log'), SS_Log::NOTICE);

my php.ini in /etc/php/7.0/apache2/
log_errors = On
error_log = /var/log/php_errors.log
error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT

Some times I use .htaccess code to display error on my local development machine and it's work for me.

php_flag display_startup_errors on
php_flag display_errors on
php_flag html_errors on

Put This code before silverstripe code start.
Thanks for this post on stackoverflow
