Seems I've broken something in my UA 610 Solo... But what?

Hi all,

As the title says, I have noticed an issue with my UA 610. I've had it a little while, and it's always worked beautifully. However, yesterday I was mucking around with some tracks, trying to "reamp" as such (but without a reamper, just running straight from my interface output, into the 610). It didn't work great, and I was getting huge amounts of feedback.

Immediately after, I plugged in a vocal condensor to sing through, and I can suddenly hardly get any signal into the 610. Before, the same mic would be pick up a healthy signal (e.g. green light flashing) with the gain control on 3 - 4. Now, I can barely pick up a signal with the gain on 8 - 9. That should normally be wayyy too much gain for a vocal on the 610. I tried with different mics and leads, which didn't fix the issue. I've also quadruple checked that I'm not doing something whack with the setup (e.g. mic input selected, phantom power on).

Today I went to the music shop and purchased some new tubes. Put them in, and unfortunately, the issue persists.

So my question is - what else could I have broken? I don't really know where to start

You've probably damaged the phantom power circuits. This happens when the phantom power is turned on and the microphone cable is connected. Try a voltmeter to measure the voltage of the phantom power 48v.
