The device has experienced an internal hardware error.
Carousel rotation error
Turn off the power by using the power switch, wait at least 30 seconds, and then turn on the power and wait for the device to initialize.
Replace the carousel drive motor. If the error persists, replace the DC controller. If the error still persists, inspect or replace the engaging detection flag.
This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.
It is a fuser problem; you don't say, but I suspect that you replaced the original fuser with a re-manufactured fuser. I have seen this problem before; return the replacement fuser to where you bought it and tell them it is showing a 50.6 fuser error. BTW, here is a link to a PDF file that may help you with your troubleshooting in the future.
magenta motor is knackered, change it. the clunking noise when printer starts up is the fuser gears meshing together, nothing to worry about. you can change/swap the motor with another motor and see if the startup error message changes from 59.6M(magenta) to 59.C(cyan) or something similar.
