Sony A7 iv EVF quit working

Last night my EVF has gone completely black.  Then i went into the menu on rear LCD changed monitor mode to VF now both are completely black.  Luckily i was able to go back into the menu and guess the setting change to get rear monitor back on.

I mapped button C3 to force EVF but it just toggles wither or not the rear lcd goes blank or not.  I updated firmware to 1.11  pulled battery, tried again.  Charged it over night, this morning i turned it on and the EVF came on for 2-3 seconds then went to black.

Ive owned a lot of cameras over the past 13 years and this is my 2nd camera related failure.  First being a pentax k50 aperture issue.
