R Shiny: downloadHandler - problem in content argument

I have a Shiny App and want to download a plot as png using a downloadButton and the command "downloadHandler". As you can see in the code below it should use input$question for the filename. When I klick the download button all I get is "downplot" as filename and no reaction when I try to save the file. The download of the table works fine ...
Any help/advice?

I think you are missing plot(lik)

Thanks for your help.
I tried plot(lik) in the "content" argument as well as print(lik) since I´ve read this command in other posts - same result: When I klick the download button all I get is "downplot" as filename and no reaction when I try to save the file - nor an error ...
