Not really enough information. Tubes need heater voltage for the filament (which is, I assume what you are seeing) but they also need high voltage DC to power the microphone. Do you have a way to check voltages and are you or do you know someone who is a good tech? I would start with voltage checks*. If you do not have the skill set call the place where you purchased the mic and ask if they can recommend a local tech OR send the microphone back to BLUE for a check out. Tubes can also go "bad". Dealing with tube microphones problems when they "go bad" is a whole different skill set. Best of luck!

*You will need a schematic with the voltages shown. I don't know if Blue supplied that information when you bought the microphone or if they will send you a schematic.
