Canon Pixma yellow color problem

Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

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 Cyan-yellowish color has either dried up or has bad nozzles. Take out the color cartridge and put in on a glass dish with 1/8 inch of warm water on it. After 5 minutes, wipe it dry with tissue paper or paper towel and try it in printer again. You'll probably need a new color cartridge, there is a large failure rate of cartridges from the mfg. and re-mfg.

Recheck the placement of the ink cartridges. The black ink cartridge is larger; the cyan, magenta, yellow cartridges are all the same size.

When the ink cartridges were replaced, two or more may have been inadvertently switched or an extra yellow cartridge placed in.

Incorrect colour is printed

I would try to replace the printhead and the magenta cartridge at the same time. Lots of people with leaky cartridges have this same symptom only, it is with whatever color is malfunctioning.
