If the port does not require poe you can use the "disable inline-power" command on that port and normal traffic should flow as intended. Here is an Article that explains this:

You shouldn't need to disable PoE to use the port as a regular data port.  If the device doesn't signal that it requires power, the switch won't send it.
But if you want to disable it, the command is an easy one:  disable inline-power <port>
