I think I need a new amp

I've been recordin vocals for a while now n i can tell when somethings wrong with how a vocal track sounds... well the problem is i'm not sure if the amp in the mixer has come to its end or the mic.

The mic (mxl 990) still works and so does the mixer (behringer UB802) but the sound that comes out sounds totally different than it did before and i'm not sure which of the products it is.

If someone could help me with some ideas of how to find out which one it is.

1) Try a different microphone.
2) Try using channel 2 on the mixer instead of channel 1.
3) Check that you have the EQ knobs (the top 3 in each strip) in their centre positions.
4) Check that you have the FX knobs turned right down.
5) Check that only the level knob for the microphone channel you are using is turned up.
6) Try plugging headphones in the headphone jack and see if the sound is OK there.
7) Get someone to test that the mixer power supply is giving out the right voltage.
8) What amplifier is the mixer feeding?
