I have a Sharp Fax, printer FO-5550 that is giving a high voltage error message.  Do any of you know what this message could mean?  Thanks.

Do you have a surge protector of any kind between the Sharp MFP and the outlet?

If not, it is likely that your building's power is not very clean and your printer is detecting an overvoltage event.

Depends on the duration, transient (a voltage spike) or permanent (power surge), but unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption or data loss.

You should install an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Units range in sizes designed to protect a single computer  (around 200 VA rating) to large units powering entire data centers or buildings.

We lease our printers and the maintenance co requires these to be installed:
