Seemingly, what happened is the KitProg2 firmware got overwritten with KitProg3 firmware.
There are 3 .hex files in my C:\Program Files (x86)\Cypress\Programmer folder named KitProg.hex, KitProg2.hex and KitProg3.hex. I suspect I could revert til KitProg2 firmware using the KitProg2.hex file - is this correct?
Also - how do I program the KitProg (seemingly I can't get in touch with it - I've tried using PSoC programmer and selecting the device CY8C5868LTI-LP039 to no avail - the available port identifies as KitProg3)?

Yes, you can reprogram the onboard PSoC5 LP device with required KitProg hex file through J7 connector. Another method is to use fw-loader.exe tool to switch between KP2 and KP3. The tool resides under path \...ModusToolbox_1.0\tools\fw-loader-1.0\bin.
BTW, please make sure the SW3 onboard is switched to correct mode for programming.
Thnx for your prompt reply.
I'll try the fw-loader.exe tool and if that doesn't succeed I'll have to re-program via J7.
What file should I use?

If the KitProg3 firmware is valid on your board, you can use the flash loader to boot KitProg2 firmware. The files to be updated are under folder - \...\ModusToolbox_1.0\tools\fw-loader-1.0\bin\firmware
Please follow the details of "KitProg Firmware Loader" chapter in Modus Toolbox user guide doc to handle the updating process - https://www.cypress.com/file/455211/download
