    About 20 per cent of my tiles that I had "pinned to start" have gone completely black.

    I've encountered this quite a number of times, but it happens only after I exit a "heavy chat app" that seems to unload a lot of data from RAM. If possible (without violating your privacy), can you post a screenshot of your start screen, or tell us more of what happened before your tiles blacked out?

    Are these application tiles or shortcuts to webpages pinned from within Internet Explorer. Because I have a similar problem with theses shortcuts. They start as a normal tile with a preview of the page. They turn blank when more webpages are pinned to the start menu!

    or maybe it's just that you removed your sd card where you store your apps?

    Could also be your phone is doing a backup and the backed out apps aren't usable during it because they're being backed up as well. ;)

    Thanks, all, for your replies.
    What turned black are shortcut tiles to webpages.
    What I did to restore them to original look was select each black, saved the webpage as a favorite, unpinned the black, selected the favorite and pinned it back onto start.
    Through the overnight, the renewed ones held on.
    I do notice that the MSN News shortcut, which before presented changing updated photos, now is the standard, unchanging block white-on-red look.
    I hope they don't start turning black again. What are the chances?
    Lumia 920.
