Sekonic L608 reading overexposed

Hi please forgive a lightmeter newb question. I recently bought a L608 second hand. I am using it with a Nikon D750 DSLR (24/70G and 50mm 1.4D lenses normally)and am having problems with the incident light readings in ambient light  which seem to consistently overexpose in a wide variety of situations. I have calibrated the meter as much as I can (1EV) but its more like a full stop out. The spot seems to be about right though. Is it possible the meter is defective or maybe its more of a film than a digital meter? If anyone can shed some light, it would a real help. Thanks Toby
