I had one page on a large site which for some odd reason only loaded the Google public service messages for donations. I could never figure out why. It looked no different from other pages on the same site which had the same layout and the same GoogleAds which loaded perfectly every time.
I checked at different times on different days and still no ads, just the donation link. Since it was a main entry point to the site, I didn't want most people to see nothing but donation ads. It looked tacky. I guessed that Google had somehow "read" the page as problematic, and didn't want to put ads on it, so I gave up and just removed the code for ads altogether.
Several months go by and I decide to try again, see what happens. So last week I put up the same old ads, and low and behold, now they work. Average revenue on this page per day: $10.
The morale of the story is if some page doesn't behave itself ad-wise, return once in a while (maybe once/week) and see if it fixed itself.
AdSense themselves do say on their pages:-
There's an explanation of the PSA system and other things you can check to resolve those issues here:-
When I had an issue with PSA's once Google evaluated the problem and gave me some cryptic clues about "AdSense Stop Words" which cause PSAs. You can search for that phrase and a few others on this forum and get a lot of insight into the situation for the next time it happens.
