MLXE-8 and Fiber optics and TX Gbics

I have an issue with my MLX SWITCH THAT IF I have an SX Optic installed on a blade, If i pull the optic and replace it with a TXgbic it doesnt see the new gbic but if i plug the gbic into a port that has had no gbic (of any kind in it since the last reboot) It will see the media and allow me to use it.

Is there some procedure to force the switch to recognize the change? Rebooting the switch is not an option (while in production)

Any ideas?
