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 :)

    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 Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Prinnter not printing but showing &#39;put custom in manual tray&#39;


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

An online manual here: http://my.okidata.com/PP-ML320.nsf?opendatabase There is probably a top of form setting which needs to be checked & corrected. I assume you've checked tab/margin settings in your software & printer setup?

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
