Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, let me suggest doing a MASTER RESET of the device, which SHOULD set it back to factory defaults and make the INITIAL screens appear - where you can set the language of the device. I have the instructions to do that below.

To Master Reset the Approach (S1 & S2):
- Power the Approach off (Press and hold LIGHT/POWER button until device powers off)
- Press and HOLD DOWN
- Release DOWN and LIGHT/POWER when screen displays Clear user data?
- Select Yes

The device should now be reset to default factory settings, and the device should function as expected

Please give that a try and let me know if the initial screens appear.

Thanks, ***** *****
