My first Windows Phone problem ever. Just out of nowhere today, a handful of tiles vanished from my screen leaving big black blank spaces where they one were.
What's worse... when I go to re-pin the tile there, I can't. The option to "pin to start" is greyed out, as if the tile is already there.
Tried rebooting the phone, moving tiles around, deleting some and putting some back, but nothing fixes it.
Did they purposely break my tiles in that last update so I have to buy a new WP8 phone or what? :P
Seriously though, has anyone else encountered this and know of a solution. I'm out of ideas aside from deleting the offending apps and reinstalling them.

best is to delete the offending apps and reinstall, this type of thing I have seen happen after an update to the os or the app, me some apps don't update right and create 2 of themselves and then its just confusing...I haven't had the disappearing apps I have had double apps and tiles not work

That's really odd. I have not had that happen yet.
The only issue I've had is when live tiles stopped updating after I updated an app. I've resolved that issue by uninstalling and then reinstalling the offending app.--Laura Knotek (formerly known as lak611)

I had a bunch of tiles go blank once, matching the accent color, but a soft reset cleared it up.

What happens if you click on the black tile. If you want to uninstall and reinstalled paid apps, you will not be charged again if you use the sam account to install them again. Click buy, the the message should say you have already purchased the app. Lastly, before you uninstall mke sure the app is still available in the marketplace.
