Is this a generic ink? The chip sometimes can't be read by the printer if it is. Did the inks ever work if they were generic and then just stopped working?

Canon doesn't like people to buy affordable inks so they make it harder for people to use generic inks ;P Sometimes I just remove the cartridge a few times and put it back in. Sometimes it works, but when it doesn't I return it to the store and get another and that usually works.
