[PQuest] low DC voltage

Dear PQuest community,

The DC voltage is low today, and the plasma is dark.
Also, the chamber pressure is way too high, as well as
it is difficult to obtain the impedance matching.

Previous user (mitsuru1) also told me that he got the
dark plasma.

Would you, anyone who knows the machine well, please
improve the situation ? Thank you...
