D7200 Viewfinder problem

Hi Folks,

Hoping someone can help solve.....

All of a sudden I am getting a blurry image though the optical viewfinder on my D7200.  it was fine previously.  No amount of twiddling with the viewfinder focus wheel seems to help and there is also a narrow lighter band at the very bottom of the viewfinder window.

Photos are coming out in focus.

I was wondering if the mirror is not seating down fully into position.

What I have noticed is that there is a small plastic, retractable part inside the camera which the mirror seems to sit on (on the left-hand side).  If I push the mirror down gently this piece goes back in and the the mirror goes a few degrees further down.  Should the mirror be sitting on this part and if not how do I get it to retract?

Thanks in advance

Nikon D7200
