I had the same problem with all my Cokin Flashes, they had a -4 stop
problem, so I fixed the exposure meter with incremental chromatic layers of
black marker touches...
But a mere +/- 2 stop is a good range if you shoot negs (C41) rather
than Slides (E6)....

A big step, they might find other problems....the time spent can be
quite high, and the proper meter sensor too.

They might cost you a bit much these days...oh but wait, there are
camera repair schools where you are or mail-out?

Can you fool the light sensor a few stops then...might cost you a
bit of film a few NOTES to compare after slide/neg development...
