What a year

After getting my K30 aperture solenoid repaired the poor thing fell off the tripod this morning. It had on the K55/1.8. landed on the tank of a lens. The lens survived the K30 for all intents and purposes survived as well with one issue. Now the meter seems to be misreading, everything is over exposed . in a dark room with only a table lamp for light I need EV-1. with two or more lights on I need to back it down to -3. on my 35/2.4 or 55/1,8 no matter the iso setting or aperture selected. on my Tamron 90 macro the exposure is about .5 step better . I haven't tried any other lenses yet. but expect the same from them.
Any ideas to try as to fix this would be appreciated. I love this camera and don't really want nor can afford to replace it at this time. I have sent an E-mail to the gentleman that repaired the Aperture block to see if he might be willing to look at it to see if or what might have been knocked out of place. I am still looking /hoping for something I might be able to do to remedy the problem.
