the first place to check is the MasterLog:
  condor_config_val MASTER_LOG

look in that file and see if you see any obvious errors indicating why condor
is not starting.

also, if the disk is full and the condor_master cannot open the MasterLog file
itself, you might see that behavior.  the master also tries to create a lock to
prevent you from starting multiple masters.  it will log a message if the lock

finally, you can try running it in the foreground with logging to the console:
  condor_master -f -t

hope that helps.
