I have not had that problem using blanks that I refill. The only thing
that would cause that problem is the generic cartridge may not have
the "prism" on the bottom inside of the liquid tank.
I have seen several cartridges and read about some generics not having
the prism that is needed in order to set off the low ink warning. It
is easily visible if you look for it.
