Tank Full message when it's really empty
I have a Direct Q 5 and after replacing the cartridges and getting water for a few days I am now getting a "Tank Full" message when the tank is empty. I have checked the float inside the tank and it is not stuck (it's at the bottom of the "sensor") and if I unplug the "jack" from the back of the millipore system I get water, plug the "jack back in and I get the "Tank Full" message, any suggestions?

Initial set-up
I am looking for the UV Winlab software that is compatible with this unit. PKN no longer has, nor supports, the product. I believe the last version for the unit was V 2.60, but the tech was not absolutely positive. Anyone with AA100 relics that can offer assistance or guidance?
