Ok, this is the first action i would take. completely deactivate this printer by unplugging from the wall. be sure to shut down all queued printing jobs before this action. leave this unit unplugged for 5 mins. after this hard reset, plug the printer unit back in the socket and, resatr the unit. this should fix this firmware scramble. you may want to downlad a softwre update as well. drivers and firmware. thanks for using fixya:)

Not sure what this part is called, sort of a guide ribbon for the printer/ink head. can I replace?

Is this the part you mean? One example I found, if this is the part then it looks like its available. The linked website has photos of other parts if this is not correct. I use this website because it shows photos of the parts, I have no affiliation with the company.
Trust this helps, best regards Alan

Why is my printer printing out only green on my photos?

Check your printer cartridge. Ideally, there will be one for black and three for the colors; however, some printers only have 1 for color. If that's the case, then probably all the color ink except for green is gone from the printer cartridge. If so, you are going to need to buy a new color ink cartridge.

Color on photos suddenly has a blue - purple wash with no greens

Your yellow cartridge is probably not working as your photos suggest. Remove and reinsert the yellow cartridge. Try printing only yellow color.
Your printer has a separate head for printing; the nozzle for yellow ink might be clogged. Try running a head cleaning routine from your printer software.

The printer prints very slowly all of a sudden. It took over an hour to print out 4 pages. I've unplugged everything. I've cleared the print ques. Same thing is happening when I copy. Help!

If the output quality has improved greatly, you may have selected the "High" quality instead of "Normal". The front panel should give you a clue as to how to adjust.

Incorrect color prints on photos

Sounds like your printer is malfunctioning and has a problem. First I would delete this printer then reboot your computer and reinstall it and try again. If no success printer needs to go to shop or replace it.

Too much green

Hold the print head over a steaming kettle take care not to scald yourself. The ink will run out of the bottom of the printhead just dab on a piece of paper towel, when you see green you will have cleaned it. I dont know if this will do any long term damage to printhead but it has worked three times for me
