If it is squeaking when it is trying to pick up the paper then check the Paper Feed system.
If it is squeeking as it tries to print. Then it will be either the Cartridge or the Drum unit.
If it is squeaking from the back of the machine as the page is fed through the fuser then check the fuser is free moving.

Replacing the faulty unit will fix the squeaking. Be that the Paper Feed System/Drum/Toner/Fuser.

A loud squeak

-the canon laser shot LBP-5200 printer is making squeaking noise most likely the printer needs cleaning or oiling as well, if you are not familiar w/ the cleaning or oiling it up, you can bring it to a local repair center, if it is still in warranty w/ canon you can call them up and have them fixed that printer for you.

Brother HL5250DN makes loud squeaking noise while printing. Sounds like crickets chirping.

This is not a problem but it can be early signs of the drum and rollers wearing out. When it does die, I suggest buying another printer.

Lexmark T520 laser printer has loud siren noise

Does it sound kinda like a jet engine revving up? If so then the printhead may be going bad.

HP LJ P2015DN making noise/squeaking

As you mentioned that the printer makes loud grinding noise or squeaking when page comes out than i feel this is the noise coming out due to faulty fuser.
I want to be sure so please open the rear bin and try to print if still noise comes than i m sure it is fuser.
If there are smudges on the printed page or if some film coating is coming out with printed page than fuser roller are physically damage.
However in this case i assume fuser is faulty.
If there opening the rear bin noise goes off than top output rollers are faulty.

Thanks and Regards

Squeaking noise when printing

Probably, but you?re going to have to try to isolate the problem a little better. Typically this would involve removing side panels and such; however, you may just have a faulty consumable like a toner cartridge, fuser or more likely the transfer kit. I typically try to isolate the sounds location then try replacing some of the consumables in that area one by one. In your case if you can?t isolate the location I would start with the transfer kit since that has a greater chance of making noise. Let us know what you find out and please don?t forget to rate the posting when we?re done.
