A firmware update has broken my Nokia 6300. Do I have any options other than taking it for repair?

I decided to update the firmware on my phone today (using Nokia's own update manager) when I connected it to my computer for the first time in many months. I ran through the process doing as I was supposed to, and updated the firmware from Version 5.0 to 6.6.
Unfortunately, after being told I could start using my phone again, the phone refused to cooperate.
When I turn it on, it seems to be working normally until just after the Nokia handshake animation when it slowly flashes 3 times before turning off.
Is there anything that I can do in a short space of time that can resolve this problem, or am I going to have to resign myself to going into some sort of phone repair establishment?
I'm in the UK (West Midlands) by the way, in case that's remotely relevant.
