Sony a9 not switching back to screen from EVF

I've recently bought a used Sony a9, and I'm having problems with the screen not turning on after taking my eye off the EVF.

I have removed the eyecup completely and the eye sensor looks clean, but not in pristine condition. There are some minor scratches there.

The whole thing is completely erratic. Some days, it has no problem flipping between the EVF and the screen. But today, today it just wouldn't switch to the screen even after turning it off and back on. It was really annoying.

If I move the screen physically, it turns to screen. Embarrassingly, holding the camera at arms length, if I put the screen back into place, it switches to EVF. But like I said, only sometimes.

Any idea what is going on here? Is this a common problem?
