Question about Kyocera Mita FS 1000+N Laser Printer
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
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.

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.

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.
- Open the right side of the printer
- Disconnect all connections to engine board
- Remove engine board
- Remove plastic guard (white)
- remove all 3 solenoids
- 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)
- Keep thickness to around .4 - .5mm Too thick on register arm will cause early printing.
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.
