Sony DSC-HX100/HX100V viewfinder blurry

Hello:

First time poster here. I recently received a Sony DSC-HX100/HX100V as a hand-me-down and it seems that the viewfinder is blurry when I look into it. Th LCD screen works fine, the photos do not come out blurry and the camera's sensor which switches between the viewfinder and LCD screen all work perfectly. I tried resetting the camera multiple times to no avail.

Is this a simple fix or will I need to replace the view finder?

I cracked the one on my ditital camera during a trip and something hard in the suitcase hit it. I bought a new one direct from China for about $10-12 with postage. It wasn't difficult to replace, but you need some really small screwdrivers.
