So what I learnt from this experience is that screen faults are increasingly common as these cars age and whilst software reloads perhaps work for some, any amount of time spent diagnosing/repairing the fault will quickly reach the same cost as simply replacing the screen. This is a simple 30 minute job that involves unclipping dash trim, removing 6 screws to release the unit from the dash and a further 6 screws to get the screen out of its frame, then unplug 3 electrical connectors.
I found an independent JLR specialist selling brand new units on eBay for a fair price and offering free advice and/or fitting, although I fitted mine myself. Link below:

Next job is to update the firmware and navigation maps with 2014/2015 discs, which I believe are the most recent for the XK. Probably not going to try more recent Volvo discs as apparently this limits some other features.
