I found another thread that discusses this problem I am also having. I repeat my description below:
I updated to the BlackBerry PlayBook version 1.0.5 Bundle 2304. I used the App World several times to install (and possibly delete) applications.
I installed an app successfully, then I was no longer able to see the icons in App World. All I see is the background image.
After rebooting the PlayBook, App World is still blank. However, the notification icons related to updating apps in App World are present. Clearing the notifications do not change the status of App World. The notifications eventually reappear in the status area. At least one of these notifications are for a program that was previously updated to the alerted version -- the notice still appears after the app was updated. (The app was updated prior to this current problem with App World.)
[Additional Information: My PlayBook was in development mode since I was testing an app I developed. The sample app was signed and I do not have a debug token installed on my machine yet. Disabling the development mode has no change to this problem.]
[Additional App Info: JQuery Mobile App is now a completely blank screen. I tried to update it in App World prior to this problem and was given a message that the PlayBook could not connect with App World. However, soon after this attempt, I was able to download the BlackBerry News and CrackBerry apps. Immediately after installing these apps, I no longer had access to App World -- it is now a background image.]
There does not appear to be a way to erase App World from the PlayBook to reinstall it. A security wipe may be the only way to restore the app.
I tried the RST suggestion and rebooted my PlayBook. This does not resolve my problem.

Hi Pro love
Try reloading your software.
Turn the PB off, connected to a cpmputer with a updated desktop software via USB. When you get the pop up (it appears for a few seconds) with the option to update, hit that!
This should reload your OS and in around 45 min- 1 hour your appworld should be working fine.
Let me know if that worked.
Please give kudos or mark as a solution if this helps! THanks!
