Default Increase # cycles after run has started

We made a careless mistake in preparing our sample sheet for a run currently in progress. Instead of putting in 300 cycles for forward and reverse we put 150. Is there a way to increase the number of cycles on the run AFTER is has already started? We're at about cycle 60 now so time is short, but I thought I would check.

Sorry but I don't think this is possible, at least not from any area that user can access. It may be possible for tech support to help but may have trouble getting to them at the weekend. However if you are using reagents form illumina current bad batch, you would have only gotten about 20bp from the read 2 anyway!!!!

I know this is too late, but I had a similar issue a while back and Tech Support told me it's not possible to change the run parameters once the MiSeq run has started.
