Can you be more precise over what you are trying to disassemble.

It's not a settings problem, it's a problem with aging components inside the printer.

This is an issue with bump pads on the three solenoids/clutch electro magnets like these:

Arrow points to a pad.
They are made of sort of a spongy rubber, which decomposes over time and becomes soft and sticky. Being soft they get compressed, causing the metal levers coming into contact with the solenoid core and as a consequence being released too slowly.

The solenoids are located on the right (button & lamp) side of the printer. After removing the plastic cover, looking at the side, on the left there is a control board, which needs to be unscrewed, connectors detached (you won't reconnect them wrong, each is different) and the board removed. Under it you will see two of them and a third one almost hidden behind a moulded plastic cover, which also needs to be removed.

Unscrew two screws holding the first solenoid, scrub away (using a knife) the pad and any residual adhesive, and then find some cardboard that is ~0.5mm thick (needs to be dense, not easily compressed), cut out suitable rectangles, and glue one down in place of the pad using contact adhesive for example.
Screw the solenoid back in, reconnect it and unscrew the next one, doing the same repair.
Repeat.
Note: one of the solenoids has a two-sided lever, and has two bump pads; they both need to be replaced.

Keep the thickness close to 0.5mm; if too thin, you'll get a large margin again; if too thick, printing will start at paper edge or even beyond.

This worked for me beautifully, and is based on a writeup by user
BennyFu

I used pieces of cardboard 0.55mm thick (according to my caliper...), and pressed them down firmly to get good adhesion and some initial compression to get closer to the 0.5mm optimum.

Please come back and leave a rating/testimonial if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

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.

This is a known problem.
Kyocera pretends to produce very silent printers. Therefore certain sheet metal parts inside the printer have a small piece of sponge rubber at their endings.
Unfortunately over the years this sponge rubber gets sticky. The corresponding lever, that is covered at its end with sponge rubber, sticks too long to its initial position. This is the reason why a certain lever is moved too late by the electromagnet into the position where a certain pulley is released.

As a result printing and paper movement are no longer coordinated and the printout is too low on the sheet.

Solution: Get rid of the sponge rubber, clean the lever very well in order to avoid it from sticking in its initial position. As a result you will here a much harder metallic noise when the lever moves, but the printout should be o.k.

clean the paper feed roller with a damp cloth after removing the paper tray, otherwise call a technician since parts may need to be replaced, including the roller in case.
