X-E1 viewfinder not working after drop.

Hi all

Photographing a conference today and my Gariz half case came unscrewed and my X-E1 dropped to the floor from my waist height onto carpet.  Never thought I would have to check the screw often. I do notice with this case there is very little thread from the 1/4 screw to screw into the tripod socket which is disappointing.

Didn't think the drop would do any damage as my Nikons have had some pretty rough treatment. When I checked my camera I found the viewfinder is constantly blacked out. I pushed the view mode button to check and it is still on Eye Sensor mode and if I wave my hand over the eye sensor the rear screen blacks out but the  viewfinder stays black as well.

Any suggestions?  I turned camera off and on, removed lens etc, and can't see anything else in the menu.

Cheers

Randall
