Prioritize viewfinder not working (clean sensor)

Hi all

I have a strange situation. I can cycle through viewing modes by pressing the button on the left of the EVF on my Z7. However Pruoritize Viewfinder does not work properly: most of the times the LCD does not show anything in Picture mode, while in movie mode, it seems to activate only when I tilt the camera.

At the beginning I thought that a dirty proximity sensor was the culprit, so I removed the eyepiece and cleaned everything. No improvement. I can also see the EVF activating when I put a finder in front of the sensor, and de-activating when I remove it. Just the LCD does not switch on.

The LCD works perfectly when reviewing pictures in Prioritize Viewfinder, so it seems only live mode doesnt show up. All good also when selecting Monitor Only.

I seem to remember a post with a similar issue, but cant find it. Do you guys have an idea on how to solve this minor inconvenience? Many thanks!!
