I was thinking that maybe is related to the not existing flash, maybe the camera thinks that I have a flash connected and try to compensate the extra light.... not sure if the manual mode could be affected for that too.....
I am thinking it might be spot metering used for general shooting (the most common cause of intermittent bad metering on this site).

Yes, I've had a lot better results since I started using Multi-segment metering mode.

If your meter is not responsive to light, then you have discovered the cause. If this is a recent purchase, you might consider contacting the seller. As for spot metering, I will assume you know what you are doing and are using that mode to place exposure.

I bought it last year as a second hand, I saw some problems at the beginning, but I didn't really try to understand the problem. Not sure if this is fixable and the cost to do it, is a pain in the ass, but I can a get used to check the first picture to set correctly the parameters of the camera.
