There are several moving parts inside the printer. more in a color laser printer.
Generally if you have used a refilled toner recently (any color or black), the chances are that the wiper blade in NOT seated properly inside the toner or reversed.
Try the following steps.
1. Set known set of good toner (even if nesrly empty)
2. Perform self test
3. Replace one old toner with new set corresponding color and eliminate which toner causes the squeak..
4. Mark that toner defective and Return.
5. If that is not feasible, try to forcefully rotate the drum in the opposite direction to see if helps flip the rubber blade in place
6. I will not suggest you to open the toner as it can damage the drum, spill toner and lead to you bigger mess.
7. If it is not due to toner, then the culprit is in the several gear trains inside the printer and that can be tricky to solve.
This is an error code for the RFID which is the toner bottle chip on the the toner bottles. I would suggest you check the toner cartridges for any damaged or disconnected chips, have you changed to non ricoh toners as this can sometimes cause a problem. Check each bottle if you have any old empty bottles insert one of these into corresponding colour slot and you can then see which bottle is causing the error. Failing this the board will need to be changed. I have had errors on non ricoh bottles. you can also vac out the slot to clear spilt toner. hope this helps
The contacts on the cartridge for this printer are pretty tempremantal. Try giving them a gentle wipe-down with a piece of non fibros tissue. You may want to wipe the corresponding contacts inside the printer too.
If this fails to help it may be that the contacts have been damaged when handling it. In this case replacing the cartridge is the only solution.
Canons definition of U059 is: "The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge
may not be compatible with this machine. Open the Scanning Unit (Printer
Cover) and install the appropriate FINE Cartridge.
If the error is not resolved, the FINE Cartridge may be damaged. Contact your Canon Service representative."
In my experience this is normally due to dirty or damaged contacts on the cartridge. I would recommend wiping the contacts on the cartridge with a piece of kitchen tissue and trying again. if this doesn't help try simply replacing the cartridge.
If the error persists try cleaning the corresponding contacts inside the printer in case they have become dirty/oxidised.
Umm, "First thing to do though is to swap the wires on your coil packs" is a risky idea. This would most-likely cause a backfire and possibly cause severe damage. Swapping coils between cylinders and keeping wires matched to corresponding cylinders would give the intended result.
The ideal thing to do is try another manufactures cartridge, I say manufactures not because I care who gets a sale but in experence non gen carts cause issues like yours but are not the only reason, just the main.
Check cart is correct type in correct slot, also I have known(HP) a metal clip to break away from the inside frame of cartridge slot, once broken away it damages the contacts forever too.
Clean contacts (rectangle of shinny bumpy raised bits on one wall of slot) and the corresponding ones on the cart. itself.
20 to 1.... I'd say cartridge
although knowledge of brand make model and type of consumables used would always help in diag.
