Bummer. Same issue. What's strange is when I try and open the test project (which showed the Timeline) it won't display either. So, once the timeline is gone, it's gone for all projects!

Was able to rebuild the project via XML export/import!

Having the exact same problem on the FCPX Trial. I've tried it on other computers (not running the trial, but full), and it doesn't do it. I've tried trashing preferences, restarting, moving projects in and out, I'm getting the exact same issue as the original poster, with the same visual effect. Trimming a gap to zero will produce the grey screen that I can't get any projects up after that. I'm not looking to rebuild every project with XML, and I want to know if it will happen again in the future. Thank you.

Did you try deleting
~/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro/Layouts

Exported XML file.
Remove project from the Project Folder
Deleted : ~/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro/Layouts
Import XML File
That seems to do it. Although I'm not sure if deleting the layouts had much to do with it. It seems that if you have one "funky" project it will mess up the timelines of all other projects. If you're not sure wich project is giving you problems you can one by one check to see wich is not loading. For me the bad project had no preview thumbnails while viewing project reel. Good thing the XML import works like a charm!

I had an issue like that. It turned out that somehow everything was all of a sudden in a compound clip inside an empty time line. So maybe you could open your event in listview, see if there is a compound clip and drag that to the timeline you were working in.
Hope this helps.

This happened to me.
Go to the project library and locate the timelines on your hard drives, then double click one and the timeline will appear.
