ColorQube 8570 - Unidentified stick message on old previously working ink

Product Name: ColorQube 8570
Operating System: Windows 10

As the subject says.

We recently installed a new magenta stick, which loaded fine - but now the machine does not recognize slot 2, cyan (which is low, if that matters).

That cyan stick has been in there for a long time and, up to now has operated properly.

The exact message is, "Remove unidentified cyan ink stick (slot 2)"

Unsure how to proceed. Thanks for any help.

For anyone else who runs into this problem — the solution was to brute force the cyan stick off the melting plate (it was stuck for some reason).

Once the stick could be moved, I slid it out of the machine, and simply reinserted it (all while powered on).

Once I reinserted the stick, the printer recognized it and went back to operating as expected (slow, smelly and loud).
