Thanks, ***** ***** the full model but Press and hold Stop/Reset button for at least five seconds
Does this clear the error?

There is only a on/of button

MG3250 is the model number

This refers to the panel still being opened that you open to change the cartridge.
Open it again and close it with a bit of force, does this remove the error?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Still flashing E and 1 and 6

Can you put the other cartridge back i and tell me if it still gives you the error please.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I do not have the old cartridge as it dumped a few days ago

ok, the next cause for this is a fault with the cartridge.
You removed any plastic and wrapping from it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

All packing removed, I will now go and purchase a new one in case the present one is faulty

Thank you for your assistance

We will see if the new one solves the problem

Thank you
A common cause is a faulty cartridge so we eliminate this next.
