The way inkjet printers work is they mix the limited amounts of colours available from the cartridges, by printing in layers, to get the desired colour. A lot of the time when it appears off colour its because one of the other colours isn't printing properly to show create the correct 'mix'.
This can either be because the colour is low, or because there is a blockage somewhere. I would suggest removing the cartridges & reinserting them, then performing maintenance which i believe can be done on the printer itself by pressing the menu button, finding 'maintenance/settings' pressing OK, then going to 'maintenance', followed by doing a 'cleaning procedure'.

If this doesnt help, try the same thing but choosing deep cleaning.
Hope this helps.

The color prints sheet is coloring light purple instead of grey. I check the black ink but is still half full.


grey is often made up of all the colours, so if the greys are purple it would be the Yellow missing or not printing completely. Try a printer head clean.

Yellow is missing in printouts, and the color is heavily purple, even after putting in new red cartridge and doing a deep clean


Yellow cartridge is clogged or bad. If yellow is not being out put then it will throw the other colors off. You could print a yellow, light blue, magenta (pinkish) , and black squares using MS paint or other paint program. This will narrow down which cartridge has a problem.

Bad yellow cast to photos when printed


If you have a yellow cast to your photos, the problem might not be your printer. If you're using a digital camera, indoors under incandescent lighting without a flash your pictures will look yellow.
If this is the case, set your camera's White Balance to Incandescent lighting or use the flash. If all of your pictures, even those taken in daylight, look yellow you'll have to adjust the colors on your printer using the "toolbox" software that comes with it and back the yellow off. I've found that HP printers tend to have better color rendition than Canon.

Duplex printing flips page


That should be a setting somewhere in the printer or the print driver on the computer.
Here's a link to the manuals that comes with it.
