Make sure the Program monitor is highlighted.

I just found out that if the Multi Cam View is toggled On in the Program Panel, the guides will deactivate. Toggling it Off solved the greyed out guides button issue. 

 

I hope that helps!

Rulers and Gudes work fine for me in Premiere Pro CC 2021. 

 

I would suggest to reset the Premiere Pro Preferences - 

  • Press Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) while launching Premiere Pro. You can release the Alt key or Option key when the splash screen appears.
    To reset preferences and plug-in cache at the same time, hold down Shift-Alt (Windows) or Shift-Option (Mac OS) while the application is starting. Release the Shift-Alt keys or Shift-Option keys when the splash screen appears.

Hi I've been having this problem, and just discovered that if you go to the wrench (settings) at the bottom of the program window I was anle to activate the rulers and guides there even though it's greyed out in the main view menu.

Hi Ann these are in fact the rulers and guides that the OP is referring to not overlays... I just posted the solution that worked for me, not sure why everyone is up in arms about it.
