X-E3 starts with Chinese menu

Well it may be Japanese, but for me the difference is academic.  A few weeks ago I took the battery out of my X-E3 to charge it and when done it restarted as if newly delivered, the start up screen.  To see if this was a one off, I took the battery out to charge today and now it starts with a totally unfamiliar screen in pictograms of either Japan or China and no amount of fiddling gets it beyond the start up screen.  This was one of the first X-E3s, not mishandled but I'm working on the assumption I'll end up paying for the main board to be replaced.

Anyone seen this and fixed it?  Is my estimate of £300 about right?  Obviously it will need fixing.
