Go to Admin Section Cache Management click Flush Static File Cache and run

bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

command your theme Folder Re Generate your theme folder in Pub Static.


I also deleted the .htaccess file in the static folder. Added that back in static folder and it started again - everything started to work :)
