SOURCE: kyocera printer problem

First I would recommend cleaning the printer. When you change the toner there is sheet of paper that comes with the toner cartridge that explains how to properly clean the printer. If you do not have that handy, there is a panel on the left hand side of the printer that you need to open. Once the panel is open you will see the waste toner bottle; leave it in place. Above and to the right of the waste toner bottle will be a green nob. Pull this green nob slowly in and out three or four times. This will clean the charging wire. Next underneath the green nob there should be a piece that looks like a rectangular box when you pull it out. I believe it is green as well. This is the charger grid. With each toner you should have gotten a small slate blue box with a plastic lid that has a piece of felt under the plastic lid. Remove the lid and this should slot in under the long, rectangular charger grid. Move this back and forth three or four times and than remove the slate blue box. Gently push the charger grid all the way back in and close the access panel.

If this does not fix your problem I would recommend getting service from wherever you purchased the printer as you may have damaged the drum.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

SOURCE: Printer will only print page 1 of multiple page documents

1. Check that you are using the latest print driver - from kyocera website.
2. If the issue is when you print pdf files then make sure you set the printer in KPDL Auto mode - check the print driver settings about this and the printer menu.
3.You may check if you have the latest firmware installed within the printer - print a service status page (Menu->Others->Service).

The small glass surface at the top of the scanner bed had some gunk on it. I scrapped it off and the line went away! Yay!

SOURCE: Black lines down on printed page

This is caused by dirt/debrise on the ADF (automatic document feeder) scanner glass. You need to open up the feeder where your originals are fed in and look for a strip of glass that runs from front to back. It is about an inch or so wide. You need to clean this glass to get rid of the lines. Some models have this glass just to the left of the large main glass, but in your case I beleive it is in the feeder itself.
Good Luck.

Kyocera FS-1020D starts print 1/2 way down page

Internal tests like Report Prints are printed correctly? Make sure the Paper Size Format is setted correctly both on PC and Printer. Try not to use a Generic or Universal Printer Driver. Try installing printer with an Windows Vista driver if the Win7 and 8 drivers won't solve the problem.

Dark lines fs 3900

The lines are more than likely caused by either the Drum, Developer or Fuser unit. I have found in many cases that if non genuine toner is being used this will give you poor quality images. You can try using genuine toner which may resolve your issue but you may have to run a few hundred prints to clear out the old toner before the image improves.

Whenever our Kyocera Fs-720 printer prints it leaves dark splotchy smudges all the way down the page, any suggestions?

Your printer probably is due for a maintenance clean, which can be done by a certified printer technician.

My Kyocera FS-C5030N has just started printing a red line on the right side of every page?

Try cleaning the magenta charge grid on the left side door of printer. But from my experience this is caused by the magenta developing unit wearing out or going bad. A kyocera dealer can help with this.

A black line is printing 6.5cm from the right side of the page

Clean the main charge, this is a step that is suppose to be done when replacing the toner but most people don't. The instructions to do this is in your users manual. If you dont have the manual go to to download one. Also make sure the cleaner is placed all the way back to the right when done or it will effect your prints.
