You probably cant. Try replacing the chip with one from an old empty cartridge of the same colour (using superglue or something), as the unrecognized chip is faulty and usually cant be fixed, and you should throw it away as soon as you take it off to avoid confusion. Now try to convince your local ink refill shop to reset the chip for you.maybe tell them your nephew bit the old chip off and ate it.
OR try the web to purchase a "chip resetter" device.

Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left. I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.
Hi, since you've already replace the yellow ink cartridge for several times and its not recognize. Your printer might have a defective printhead. You may take your printer to the nearest HP service center in your area so that they can look on your printer further.
I had the same problem with the yellow cartridge. At first when I resinserted it, it would solve the problem, but today even that didn't work.
I did solve the problem by clearing all print jobs, turning the printer off and then on, and then running a cleaning cycle on the color nozzles. I don't know why this fixed things, but my yellow was suddenly recognized without any further fiddling.
