That sounds very much like a failure of one of the input capacitors. These are high quality low-leakage caps as they have to withstand the phantom power voltage.

It’s unusal for them to fail but it has been known. The capacitors are (should be) labelled C10 and C11.

If you would like to email me at ted@tfpro.com I will email you the circuit diagram.

I’m not guaranteeing that the fault is there; if necessary I can fix it for you. The cost of a repair to a VC3 is £25 plus the cost of parts and return. :(
