Huge Margin with Kyocera FS 1000+

Hi,
I've many problem concerning Kyocera FS 1000+ (6 printer, same problem on all the six printers!!) . If I print any page, the top margin is too high. Even if I print the "print self test" pressing che green button on the printer, the page has the same the huge top margin. You told that there is a way to calibrate the margin...where can i find this way? I think is not a driver problem but a mechanical problem..but I don't know how to solve it :( Thanks for patience

    My FS-1000 printer has worked well until hard drive failure. New drive and complete system rebuild. I had all HD data backed up except for down loaded software drivers on purpose but may be a big mistake. I cannot compare old set-up with new but now the closest I can print is 24 mm from top of A4 page and priniting can be cropped by bottom of physical page. I expect that the current printer driver is the problem as many other factors are identical. Windows XP was reinstalled and patched to be completely up-to-date. I have had this problem for many months but waited as I would have expected the internet community to have resolved this problem.

    I have the same problem but on a fs 3830 I found the sensor I just need some help on how to adjust the sensor or a on line schematic. This would be very helpful.

    Right, where do I send the eBeer? You have just breathed a new lease of life into my aged FS-1010. This problem has been niggling at me for ages. I have even been in and cleaned the whole thing before now, to no avail. One small tip: When you replace the foam pads make sure you clean the opposite area (where the pad presses against) with a little alcohol. My pads were so compressed that the glue had leaked through and made the opposite side somewhat tacky. It's this tackiness that causes the problems, as it delays the release of the solenoid by a fraction of a second. Clean that glue off, replace the pads (I used some anti-static foam cut to size with a stanley blade - works well) and bob's your uncle, one new printer :)

If the FS-1000 prints too far down the page or leave too much top margin or leaves a gap at the top of the page etc (<- for google searches). This is a problem with the felt pads on the three solenoids/clutch electro magnets that are under the right panel (2 under the engine/button board, 1 under the inner plastic cover, sometimes 4 in total on other kyocera printers). They get compressed over time meaning the metal leavers come into contact with the solenoid meaning they are released too slowly. Simply replace the felt pads with .5mm cardboard or another non-sticky non-metallic material. Too thick and it prints too far up the page.

    You da man!
    I fixed an FS-1000+ purchased on an auction site and now it works great :) 0.55mm cardboard did the trick beautifully :)

  • ryque Jul 28, 2011

    I can't find the three selenoids/cluth magnets but would really like to get it fixed. Anyone got some pictures or anything to help me find these? Printer in pieces on my desk now!

    Thanks, Rick

    Hi, just came back from work, couldn't post earlier.

    They are really hard to miss, when you look at the side of the printer they are on the left. You need to unscew the driver board ,and you will see two and a half ;) of these:
    http://s.eet.eu/products/2_5ezsa24024103...

    Half, because the third one is hidden behind a plastic moulded cover, also mentioned by BennyFu.

    Each is screwed down by 2 screws.

    It's the brown/greyish part that needs attention; it's not even felt, it's kind of a spongy rubber, which with time becomes soft and sticky. I removed these 4 pads (one of the solenoids has a two-sided lever and has two of those pads) with a sharp knife, scrubbing away all the residual glue. Then I glued on rectangles of 0.55mm dense cardboard (this is what i found at hand, from some packaging) using contact adhesive.
    After reassembly the problem was g o n e :)

    We got the same problem on several veteran Kyos. We are working in the tropics and on some of our printers, the pads are not only compressed, they have turned into some sticky goo. Looks like they used to be foam... Our levers do not actually touch the solenoid core, but they release to slowly because of the sticky pads. I put new pads from thin cardboard (some with double sided tape, some with glue, will see which last longer in the heat) and guess what: The printouts are well positioned. Well done BennyFu, we had this problem slowly get worse over months - and you got the solution for us. Many thumbs up for you.

Laser printer has a margin sensor in the paper through way between paper input sensor and drum cartridge unit. too much top margin means this sensor lost it's sensitive paper edge function but works delay. you may try carefully take out paper tray and cartridge looking the paper through way the position of margin sensor, clean and adusting the sensor stander as well.

My printer had a similar problem - top margin unpredictable. The repair shop replaced a solenoid somewhere inside it to fix the problem. It is a mechanical problem.

My Kyocera fs-1118MFP is cutting off top margin of all documentscopy or print. How do I fix, plz help.


I don't know that machine but generically, the description suggests a faulty drum or fuser unit...

How many prints or copies since either or both were changed, please?

Tip

Top margin, header page, the print is changed (lowered).


If you print and the top margin is altered (low), look at the figure below.

Kyocera FS1010 first page only half printed


I found this solution. Worked a treat. I took the printer apart and applied felts to the solenoids (the felt normally used for the bottom of cup coasters).

See the Success post in this thread...

This is the post...

Success
A solution has been found. Thank you to Steveauh (Townsville)

Kyocera in their wisdom have used a foam insulator on the 3 solenoids that disintegrates over time regardless of use.


  1. Open the right side of the printer
  2. Disconnect all connections to engine board
  3. Remove engine board
  4. Remove plastic guard (white)
  5. remove all 3 solenoids
  6. Replace all pads on the solenoids that come up against stops
    Registration Solenoid has 2 pads (1 against the solenoid frame and the other on a stop arm, the others just the frame pad)
  7. Keep thickness to around .4 - .5mm Too thick on register arm will cause early printing.
  8. Reassemble

And that is it. The arms were being magnetically delayed due the metallic contact. It seems to be a regular problem in this chassis FS1000 to FS1030.
