Keep hoping... I never received any help from Blue Microphones.
(Even if you have to replace the tube, they want you to send in the complete microphone.)

Quick update:
My tech managed to fix the supply (Several dry joints) but i am still concerned about the apparent lack of availability of service docs on an objectively unusual design. I will reach out to Blue. Hopefully they will get back to me after the US festivities.

I recently repaired a Blue Bottle power supply. (No schematic!)
In my case one of the 78L05/79L05 voltage regulators died.
After replacing the defective regulator, the microphone worked again.
(I however never managed to get the 'ready' LED lighting... On the PCB on the bottom of the PSU there are some trimpots, function unknown.)

So all the same aluminum foil for any production, for any place is now an indispensable thing to order a good aluminum foil wants absolutely every person who has what, so he could easily give it to his staff, but such to find on the Internet a little bit difficult. I could, for example, recommend that you go to this site https://mcdonaldpaper.com/safepro-124f-heavy-duty-aluminum-foil-24-inchx1000-feet-roll . Definitely this is where you will be able to find for yourself. The best quality aluminum foil.

Hey,
I'm posting in hope that someone out there might have the service docs for the Blue Bottle and corresponding 9610 Power Supply.

(Currently dealing with a heater voltage not getting above 5v and no HT if anyone has any pointers)

Yes, two units, two different owners. Multiple sources, alongside more than one original M49, “clones”, and other high quality mics. However, the focus was on music making, not in depth comparison.

When I refer to “recordings” overall, I’m speaking of those mics *as well as* other recordings people have shared that have been made with M49V.

They are very fine mics, especially if one is considering comparison to currently manufactured tube mics. That’s a more clearcut thing to me, vs how it compares to vintage. I didn’t really want to get into that kind of characterization because in my view, how much one cares about some perception of difference is kind of personal, somewhat nebulous, and may change depending on context.

BUT, I do think it is often possible to zoom in on some audible phenomena, even very small, and fairly reliably detect it. What is a bit of a head trip for me, is the way something can start out as a small difference. Yet, if I can consistently detect it, is it small? This is the kind of thing that get pretty philosophical. This is what I mean by nebulous. I think I hear consistent differences in the rendering of consonant sounds and another kind of difference in the low midrange.

(...) The sonic difference between the new and old is audible across multiple units, in person and in recording.
Just factors I have considered in assessing the idea of purchase.
Do you have personal recording experience with the M49V? Or are you basing your opinions of the sound of this mic entirely on internet "shootouts"?

I'm very happy to report that after replacing C5 & C6 late yesterday and initial test sounded good, then leaving the mic fired up all last night, I woke this morning to an apparently healthy C414EB. Capacitors C5 & C6, and possibly some general cleanup of loose-looking wiring, a couple of potentially cold solder joints, and removing excess gobs of solder did the trick. Thanks again to all for your advice and counsel! Case closed! At least for now...
