Default metalic ink....gone

Hi All
I bought a Mimaki cjv30-100 in November. I love the quality of the print and the machine works well for my company.
I have never used the metallic ink and it is empty. When I called the company and asked about it, they said that's normal, it empties during cleanings. The ink is $250 to replace. I haven't printed on metallic thing with it. Does anyone know a way to trick the machine into thinking the cartridge is still full. I don't want to keep buying metallic for the machine to eat.

thanks for you help

I bought my CJV30-100 in August last year. I too got the silver/white ink set-up. After a couple months of seeing that I wasn't going to use the silver/white inks we changed over to 6 color. You may want to do the same? OR maybe you want to buy my 3/4 full silver/white ink?
