Epson r3000 Can't Read a New Cartridge

I just replaced the yellow ink on my r3000 for the first time. The new cartridge is original Epson, as far as I can tell. After inserting and closing the lid, printer display panel comes back with "Cartridge cannot be recognized" or something closer tp that. I've treid various re-seating attempts. Putting in the previous empty cart gets back to the out of ink message.

In frustration went out and brought another new cart from a local store...slapped it in abd all is good.

What if anything can be done with the $40 yellow ink "paper weight"? I purchased is some months back on-line (Amazon...others from that purchase are working fine) so return to vendor is not an option.
