My magnifier piece fell off the rack of my camera body and i cannot fix it back. Can still take photos but the viewfinder view now got vignetting effect so i cannot see the view properly. Can this be fitted DIY or need to send for repair? If so any idea how much it costs? Anyone had encountered this issue before?

1) That's the focusing screen.
2) It can be done DIY, plenty of tutorials online. Get tweezers first, preferably with plastic tips or plastic tip covers.
3) Determine first how and why it came off. Usually there are brackets and small clamps to hold it in place. It's not easy to get them loose (see #2), so they should not come lose on their own.
