HP Designjet 5000 UV ink tube system

I have a Design Jet 5000. My dye tube system works great. I just bought a new UV ink system. The ink is in the tubes at the back of the plotter but its not going all the way through the tubes.? Why wont this work but the dye does?

Thank you

You can't put dye ink in UV tubes or vice versa. If you have a dye plotter u use dye ink. UV Plotter uses UV ink.

I have a tube system for Dye inks and one for UV inks. We switch them out. My Dye system works fine and prints fine. I take it out and put in the UV tube system and UV inks and it wont pump the ink all the way through the tubes.
