Are you sure it's in the mic? Have you tried another mic into the same signal chain?
Is there a lot of humidity in your environment? If so, sometimes drying the capsule by leaving the mic several feet over a low wattage light bulb for a few hours might help.
Unfortunately, your other options of changing out the cable, tube or power supply are somewhat more expensive or involved. Good luck.
