Dear Abhi, it looks to me like your chips had low hybridization, based both on the low percentage of probes detected and on the low interquartile range of intensities. Fig. 2 from PMID23136189 (admittedly my publication) shows the range of IQRs for samples within several published studies using Illumina BeadArrays for FFPE tissues. The normal IQR is around 2, which corresponds to around 50-60% present at p<0.05. Your typical IQR is around 1, and I can't directly read percent present but it looks around 20-30%. I would be concerned, and do some additional checks: 1) if you have technical replicates, check them by MA plot and sample-wise correlations, 2) MA plots against the median pseudochip, 3) check for detection and high intensity of the positive control probes (labelled CY3_HYB and HOUSEKEEPING on Illumina chips I've looked at), and 4) run the ffpe::sortedIqrPlot() function to see whether IQR or percent present are related to correlation to median pseudochip in your experiment. Are you using FFPE specimens?
