You have no switches to eject paper, put it offline, power off, or change cartdriges. All this functionality has to be done by software. Jean-Jacques Sarton has written a graphical utility named "mtink" which does all maintenance tasks on Epson inkjets, as nozzle check, had cleaning head alignment, and even changing cartridges on the Epson Stylus Color 480/580.

The model 480 or 480SX is a parallel device; the model 480SXU is USB only.
