Troubleshooting:

SharePoint central admin page cannot display the webpage error could be caused since Central Administration service is in the disabled state! Let’s troubleshoot by checking Central Administration service status with PowerShell:

$CA = Get-SPServiceInstance | Where-Object {$_.TypeName -eq 'Central Administration'}
write-host $CA.status 

Got “Disabled” as Central Administration Service Status! No issues, Lets start the service:

Get-SPServiceInstance | Where-Object {$_.TypeName -eq 'Central Administration'} |  Start-SPServiceInstance -Confirm

Wait till it comes to “Online” Status. That’s all! We’ve fixed SharePoint 2010 central administration page cannot be displayed issue.
