Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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! ;-} "

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.
