HP Deskjet 1056 supposed to be dual voltage...?

I just bought an HP Deskjet 1056, which is supposed to be dual voltage according to the specs, but the sticker on the box says "Power: 120V". I'm hoping that is only because it was purchased in the US so the power cord in the box has a 110v plug on it. Will I be able to use this in a 220V country with just a plug adaptor? I bought this model specifically because I want to take it overseas with me. If it's not really dual voltage, to where I can use it over there with just the plug adaptor, then I will need to return it, and I only have 10 days in which to do that, so please help ASAP!

What does it say on the "brick" on the cord? Look for power specs on the cord transformer.

Testimonial: "It's got ~100-240v! Now WHY didn't I think of that?!? Thanks, Max! Unfortunately, I'm going to have to return it anyway, as I received it with the one side of the input tray's attachments broken! I already had an HP Deskjet F4440 (which was also dual voltage) that recently stopped recognizing the color ink cartridge (regardless of ALL the troubleshooting steps being done multiple times!) after the warranty ran out. I finally, just now, paid for a trouble shooting call (which they are refunding, having determined that the color print head must have gone bad - YAY!) and I ended up letting myself get talked into buying a discounted/refurbished HP Deskjet 3050A to replace the F4440 (which was why I'd bought the 1056, but since it arrived broken...)... I HOPE this will be the END of my nightmare, as I am moving overseas toward the end of January and need to ship my printer when I leave! Thanks again for the oh-so-obvious-DUH! reminder/solution, Max! ;-} "

    Sometimes we over think a problem. Everyone does it, few admit it. Cheers! Happy Holiday to you and yours.

SOURCE: changed power supply from 110v to 220v, now get 50.2 fuser error

The printer will have a 120v fuser, unkess that has been changed for a 220v fuser, it won't get up to temprature on 220v, hence the error message.

It needs a 220v fuser.

Dual voltage

contact emachines and ask them, not all power supply units have volt switches, the best thing you could do is have a physical look at the same model if you can find it in a store or view the specs on line

HP Vista Won't accept software program.

Toolbox utility

The HP Deskjet 1280 doesn't appear to have a toolbox utility at all, especially for Vista, there's even less.

How are you supposed to check the ink levels without such a utility?

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!

Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...
