The Canon PIXMA MP480 is a colour inkjet printer, copier and scanner that uses a four-color ink system to produce documents and borderless photographs. If you refill the cartridges for the MP480 instead of replacing them, you may get an "Error E16" message on the printer's display screen, which means the printer still thinks the cartridges are empty.
