It's hard to know or sure without seeing what you're seeing if it's "wrong" or not... what I can tell you is that HDR tends to be "darker", and that's by design. Allows for greater shadow detail.
Also depends on what content your watching. "Luke Cage", for example, off Netflix, makes for a pretty dark, low-lit HDR viewing experience. Conversely, if you have a 4k UHD blu ray player like an OPPO 203, a movie like SING will look quite bright, by design, while viewed in HDR. If something like that looks dark, I'd say you definitely have a problem.
Also, proper calibration of last-gen-1080p sets resulted in a darker, non-Best-Buy-storeroom "torch mode" picture than what some often liked/preferred, too.
I don't know what your preferences/usage is, just that HDR *might* look "dark" to you and still be functioning properly.
