It is printing everything with a green tint and I had not changed any settings. I have also gone out and bought two new ink cartridges thinking maybe the new one I had was defective. There is no change...
I have personally encountered similar problem in my work. There is no problem with your printer.
Sometimes when either of the inks overflow at the nozzle, it gets absorbed to an extent into another ink compartment. So that colour affected now prints another colour; the colour that has crept into its compartment, Sometimes it is serious at other times is not. If not serious, usually, after a few solid colour prints the colour affected returns to normal.
I do not know how much of a technical person you are, but I will give you the solution to returning your colours from green the right colour. Bring out your colour cartridge. Peel off the seal covering top of the ink cartridge. You will see the holes through which in is fed into it. Get a clean handkerchief, fold it and place over the top of the cartridge. Hold it over a bowl or something. Now place your mouth over the top with the handkerchief in between and blow hard. Ink will discharged at the nozzle. Clean off the ink. (At the nozzle do not rub only dab). Now press a piece of folded tissue to the nozzle firmly. It should be blotted with ink:- red, blue, yellow. If any colour is missing you may need to repeat the procedure. Once you get the three colours back, the issue is resolved.
