Question about Printers & Copiers
This could well mean you are going to have to call a Kyocera technician in.
There are a number of reasons this could happen. The teeth on the cog that drives the carriage could be worn. They could also be not engaging properly for a number of reasons.
I would not expect a non tech to try to resolve this.
If you are fairly techeical try to strip the printer down to the carriage feed under the cartridges. Look fro lodged debry or similar or worn teeth on any of the palstic cogs. If you find worn parts you will need to get new from the manufacturer.
Sorry I cant be more helpful.
Let me know how you get on.

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.
