Can't unload filament mid-print w/IR sensor

Hello,

I'm trying to print a 2/C object using different Prusament filaments, but the initial filament will not unload. If I resume printing, it will continue printing fine with the first color, which I'm assuming means no clog. The PTFE tube seems to be clear, but it's less obvious around the IR sensor.

Unloading filament happens normally when the Mini+ is at idle and no prints are queued.

Thanks.

Why do you have an IR sensor on the mini?

Thanks. 

I apologize.  I was confused.  I took mine apart and realized what the sensor is.  I have two other types of sensors.
