with more spring tension you get more pressure on the pickup.. this makes a better ground as those pickups ground through the chromed case to the saddle then to the bridge plate.
the problem with this is corrosion and or the oil from your skin gets in there and breaks ground...
so... id suggest you buy some contact cleaner... loosen your string then spray all round the pickup. do ths a few times in between blow off the residual cleanre with compressed air.
this should at the least solve the problem temporarily.
my 300 had the same problem....... i replaced the factory pickups with graphtech ghost pickups .. problem solved...

If the probelm persists, it would need to be taken to an authorized service center:
