Generator cannot ramp 50 kV 0.6 mA

Hi, we faced a problem in our single crystal XRD. Have you encountered similar problems with you? it cannot reach for the tube to reach it’s set point 50 kV – 0,6 mA anymore. it is about 30 kV - 0.3 mA now, and diffraction patterns looks very weak,
Is this an indication that the tube or generator is dying? :cry: :cry:
