Usually this means you have a leak somewhere downstream of the bubble counter, so no CO2 makes it all the way to the tank. I have had that problem, and had to work with soapy solution for quite awhile to find the leak. CO2 leaks are generally extremely tiny, so much so that you need to leave the soapy solution on the joints for several minutes before a little mound of tiny bubbles shows up where the leak is.
