Question about Printers & Copiers

Open Question

Kyocera FS-9500DN Printerguru,   I need your assistance again, please, with my 9500. I have experienced deteriorating print quality in the last several days to the point where you can barely read 12 pt fonts.  I have replaced the toner, developer unit, drum unit, and the charging assembly one unit at a time. Nothing has improved the quality. I have reset the factory software setting via the control panel and the print quality setting are: KIR Mode: ON, EcoPrint Mode: OFF, Resolution 600 dpi, Print density 03. Changing these setting has no effect on output quality. Can you give some ideas on other troubleshooting tasks that I can perform? Or do you know what the problem might be?   Thanks Knarf77

Follow the page http://www.fixya.com/support/t1336338-kyocera_fs2000_thin_black_vertical_line

Basically, you remove the cartridge and developer all at once, then remove the waste toner bottle, then push the grey tab in to release the drum cartridge (be very, very careful in removing and putting back in. Any scratches on the drum and you will enjoy black spots permanently on printouts).

On the right side of the grey charger section is a tab you can use to release it. Do this, then put the drum away in a light tight back to prevent damage to it.

The reason why this Kyocera printer doesn't have the primary charger wire cleaner is because it did away with it. It now charges via a black fuzzy looking roller on top which is like the secondary corona charger wire, which then applies it to a roller, which then applies it to the drum. I think this is nice since it should prevent printer quality problems better since there is nowhere for oxidation to really collect. But, OTOH, it does happen anyhow.

I cleaned mine off and the streaks disappeared. I used a non amonia based cleaner to help, since I didn't find any dust on it to begin with. Whatever you choose, do not get your fingers on it, or it will put oil onto the rollers and that will make it worse.

Worked for me.

if the machine is starting up and you just replaced the toner cartridge make sure it is seated properly also did you shake the cartridge slightly before fitting sometimes the cartridge can compact the toner and it doesnt agitate to the dev unit properly. check also if the dev unit has been reset properly and the lever set in place..

How do I install driver for Kyocera CS 5035 on MAC


Kyocera and Copystar models are the same just replace KM with CS.

The following instructions should help you. TO download the current driver use this link to th emanufacture website; http://usa.kyoceramita.com/americas/jsp/Kyocera/resource_details.jsp?rid=18657.

Kyocera Printer Drivers and Mac OS® X 10.5 Leopard FAQ:
Is the installation for Mac OS X 10.5 the same as for Mac OS X 10.4 and earlier? Mac OS X 10.5 introduced a new printing architecture that requires changes to the installer and installation process. For this reason, Mac OS X 10.5 requires a new printer driver installer.

I cannot see my Kyocera AppleTalk® printer. How can I make it visible to OS X 10.5? AppleTalk is disabled by default in Mac OS X 10.5. Enable AppleTalk to discover your Kyocera printer.If you use the Kyocera installer, a message will appear, asking you to enable AppleTalk. Click Yes to continue the installation.

I cannot find Printer Setup Utility on Mac OS X 10.5. Is it still supported? Apple has removed Printer Setup Utility from Mac OS X 10.5. To install a printer, open System Preferences and click Print & Fax.

When I manually install a printer, multiple PPD files are listed for the same Kyocera model. Which should I choose? When manually installing a printer or changing a PPD for a installed printer, both Linux and Mac OS X PPDs are listed for some older Kyocera models due to a change in PPD handling in Mac OS X 10.5. Linux PPDs can be identified by the word Gutenprint in the PPD filenames.

Supported Multifunction Printers: KM-1650, KM-1815, KM-1820, KM-2050 ,KM-2530 ,KM-2550, KM-3035, KM-3050, KM-3530, KM-4030, KM-4035, KM-4050, KM-4530, KM-5035, KM-5050, KM-5530, KM-6030, KM-6330, KM-7530, KM-8030, KM-C830, KM-C830D, KM-C850, KM-C850D, KM-C2520, KMC2525E, KM-C2630, KM-C3225, KM-C3225E, KM-C3232, KM-C3232E, KM-C4008, KM-C4035E, CS-1650, CS-1815, CS-1820, CS-2050,CS-C2525E, CS-2550, CS-6030, or newer.

I have a kyocera fs-3830 F040 Failed what is the problem?


This error means - Communication error - Communication between the engine board and the main board is failed. IF there are no loose connections then yo most likely have a bad main board which will need to be replaced.

I have a kyocera FS-2000D with error code: Call for service 0150:0000049. Help...thanks in advance


Error code 0150 is an engine EEPROM communication error. The engine board might need to be replaced. I have heard that sometimes a defective developer unit could cause this same error code. I would try swaping a develper from a working FS-2000D first.

Kyocera Mita FS 1010 every few days it prints out all the pages


Format the harddrive, or go to the properties and change the setting that says leave copy on the harddrive, if all this not working try to initialize the memory and you will be fine.
double check on the driver properties check if it says direct printing or it keeps any copy on the machine.
