Gestetner dsc38 error code

I have a error code of sc 386 on my gestetner dsc38 printer. I think it might be associated with the black drum but find no information on what that error means.

Sc386 is a color density error specific to black, but it usually is caused by the development unit rather than the drum. If the drum is old or worn you may want to replace it, but almost every time, replacing the DV unit will get rid of the sc386 error code.

You have an improper black toner density. Likely your black toner suction mechanism is clogged or the black toner supply clutch is not working.
