The blah, blah blah...
With years of experience as a Mac user and also a PC user, I come to a conclusion with trying to solve my computer issues. On many occasions I expended more time trying to find a fix and would had been easier to back up and reinstall. This is a painful decision no one want to confront, and of course you learn a lot of tricks and new information on the research, but it depends if you want to wait and dig more into the subject or just want to reestablish the functionality as soon as possible.

There is always the possibility for a trick or a fix that could solve your problem, so the first option should be to check if the issue is a general bug or something someone figured out. But in mayor occasions of user problems even software engineers wont want to expend a lot of time finding out particular problems. It would cost them and their companies more money.

With Apple and the user software issues is evident Apple general recommendation is restore and/or reinstall. Or sync if you prefer. That is the option under the Summary tab on iTunes "Restore". And I know it is annoying to do it, but BACK UP your files FREQUENTLY, so it wont be a mayor mess for you. Use at least one back up, but better two. Get use to Time Machine if you use a Mac or any other back up system, not only on your iDevices but in general. My friendly suggestion I give to friends and family.

I've done it on my iPod Touch without any trouble. Fortunately my iPad is working good. All my settings where restored and files synced.
