Unhappy Canon SX50 viewfinder fault

My Powershot SX50 has developed a fault, I think. The flip-out screen is suddenly showing everything upside down! I don't recall dropping it or knocking it recently. Any ideas?

Not sure if this has any relevance

Sometimes a full reset will clear things, but it feels unlikely in this case.

The manual says "Open the screen to activate it when the camera is on. This will deactivate the viewfinder. Similarly, close the screen (facing the camera body) to deactivate it and activate the viewfinder" Sounds like it should be automatic to me.
