It is possible that the printer and PC has a software conflict and unless there is a ink - colour levels of red, blue and green- level down i would advice you to follow the following steps. However if the ink levels are down please replace before you attempt the following.
If printing from the PC
1. Remove the printer and uninstall the printer's software by using remove program in the control panel.
2.Use the given printer software to reload th software following the steps in the cd.
3. Connect the printer once again , it will be detected and installated.
4. check for the printer parameters, the ink levels.
5. take a test print and confirm the quality of a colour print. If OK the colour purity/white balance should be OK.
If not there could be fault in the printing head, might have to replace.
If directly printing from camera use the reset after shutting off power,use maintenance for head cleaning , take a test print self test, ,connect camera and print once again.
If there is colour impurity, try cleaning the head one again.
if not it is possible that ink level is unbalanced or head faulty
