You are getting leakage from one color cartridge to another. Do deep cleaning and run nozzle check. You may have been using non-Cannon inks. They can corrode the ink cartridge seats due to inferrior quality ink. You may need to replace the print head. Check out Cannon web site under this printer support. Print head is in the $50 neighborhood.

Your Cannon printer is not the problem. You will get different print color depending on the paper you are using, For example you will get different print result if you print on color paper than on white paper and a different print if you print on photo paper. Another alternative is to lighten the tone of your purple. I don't know what your objective is and what project you're working on but I hope this might help.
You say all colours look blue? If this is true, does black look blue? If so then black is not printing at all so blue takes over. Did this machine print colours ok before you changed cyan? I would suspect that you are using compatable ink cartridges and they are suspect. check that all the cartridges are in the correct positions. Then run the cleaning cycle and see what happens. If the problem still persists then I would change the print head. The print head part number is QY6-0073-000.
Try printing a light stripes test page (Troubleshooting, print quality problems, troubleshooting print quality page).
If you do not appear to have many missing jets but the colours are all just wrong it may be that the ink has gone stale. Run a couple of head cleans and you should see the colours start to improve. If it is getting better, all you can do is keep running head cleans until you have replenished all the ink in the printhead well. This problem is common in situations where a lot of black and white printing is done, with very little colour. Alternatively, it could be that your wiper/cleaning blade is not cleaning the head properlyand is smearing the different coloured inks across the head, or possibly that yourprinthead is leaking colours but I think the first solution should solve your problem. Hope this helps.
Not being able to scan properly and improper colors are most often caused by glitches in the software. Try reinstalling your driver with a new updated driver for your machine. Here is a link to the OEM page:http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/dln_ekn033540.jhtml?pq-path=9106
This is the all in one driver. Install this and try again and it should fix it. Let me know if it helps.
