Faulty color just tried to print a picture, and it came out in several different shades of green.  This was right after changing my cartridge, running the test, and all the other cleaning, etc. I could find.

This sounds like (assume you have set the adobe profiles), a problem with your inkjet cartridges. IF they are genuine and not aftermarket inks, then there is a problem with either the quality of the cartridges you have installed, or possibly the print heads need some cleaning. I'd replace the cartridges as a matter of course anyway.

Something is wrong with the yellow cartridge.
pull the yellow cartridge, and make sure transportation strip got fully removed, give the cartridge a good shake, and reinsert the cartridge and try the band test again.
If you still only get magenta and cyan and combinations of them, return the yellow cartridge for a replacement.

The printer is not printing the same colours that are on the screen


How different is the color from the printer with the screen? If, you can see yellow, but the printer prints a shade of green, then your ink (particularly the cyan color) may be leaking. Check your ink cartridges if there are leaks. If there are none, try printing blocks of colors and see if the colors match with the screen. If they don't match, maybe try using a different monitor and see if the problem persists.

Uneven color lines


That is because it is printing the document as text. Not have=ing used a canon I presume it is the same as epson & HP. Instead of clicking the print icon click file print. A box should open allowing you to change the properties, seleect photo

Printing wrong colors


you might be running out of the red ink.

Whenever a printer prints the whole image but with different colors it means that the printer uses the available color with enough amount.

Try replacing it with new ink cartridge.

Dull color


I would say phone or email Kodak as you may have a faulty printhead. If Kodak sayes you have a bad head they will airmail you one overnight and throw in free black and color ink tanks all free of charge.
I have read that some how in making the printhead a run got too hot in process and thus a bad printhead.
Hope this helps
