Good luck with refilled cartridges ... I have never had success with this process (though some do) In fact, I have ruined several printers before I found out what was doing it ... refilled cartridges (store bought or home filled)

It has to do with the chip that is in the cartridge. If you refilled them your self then the chip does not get reset. Some of the refill stores can reset the chip but sometimes it does not work.
Even with my Canon I have got new ones where the level showed zero. As long as you do not have a printer that will not print if the ink levels are low you are fine.
One thing you can do however is with Canon printers when you change out the cartridge you get prompted if you replace it with a new cartridge. When this comes up you can tell it no the cartridge is not new and it may refresh to about there the level is.
With my printer I normally do not go by the level meter anyways. Because it does not show right. My color has been low for over 2 weeks and still printing fine.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions
