Greenishness output is due to a lack of magenta (cyan and yellow combine to make green). The magenta print head nozzles are probably clogged with ink. Canon would have you buy a new print head ($75 ?). However, you can clean it yourself.
First get out some paper towels or heavy tissue paper (maybe napkins); something that doesn't give off a lot of lint is best. Also get a roll of cloth or rubber tape, duct tape works great. Get a bottle of something like 409 or one of those 'orange' cleaners that you use to clean your counter top. You'll know it is the right type of cleaner when the ink continues to come out of the print head during this procedure.
First you'll need to protect the circuit board area on the back of the print head by covering it with one or more pieces of tape. This is to prevent the cleaning fluid from getting behind the circuit board and shorting it out later when you place the print head back in the printer.
Place the print head straight up as it is in the printer on a folded, flat piece of paper towels while gently pressing down. The remaining ink should begin to appear around the edges of the print head as it is being absorbed. You'll have to continually move the print head to other clean spots on the tissue as it soaks in. The tissue helps by drawing out the ink (capillary action) and by keeping the individual colors from going into the other color nozzles. Make sure that the tissue you place the print head on is always flat and not curled or folded; this could damage the nozzles.
Spray the cleaner into the top of the print head where the cartridges normally reside. I will refer to this as the cartridge reservoir. Spray enough cleaner into the reservoir to cover the round spongy contacts that connect and align with the ink cartridges. This will soak into the print head just like the ink from the cartridges and begin pushing the old ink out the nozzles onto the tissue.
Continue squirting cleaner into the reservoir and moving the print head to clean spots on the tissue until only clear cleaner comes out onto the tissue. For the clogged nozzles this may take quite a while and lots of tissue, but the cost of these supplies is certainly less than the cost of a new print head! Don't run water through the print head!
Now carefully remove the tape and place the print head back in the printer and replace the ink cartridges. You don't have to wait for the cleaning fluid to dry and, in fact, you don't want to. As soon as the ink cartridges are in place the ink will begin flowing through the nozzles. Now run a alignment test and nozzle check to test out the system. Then resume printing those family pics, nudes, charts, etc.

SOURCE: Epson 2400 printer prints dark and with slight colour cast

try these :

1. nozzle check
2. image set to RGB color (Photoshop)

3. check driver settings
4. try another file
5. try another application
6. ¨supported / recommended¨ epson paper & inks
7. another computer (to pin down where issue is happening)

8. all else fails - the printer needs service (better check your warranty status)

SOURCE: Canon PIXMA iP4200 - not printing in colours

hi i am a Canon certified tech for this machine.the orignal problem you had most likely was not your printhead but since you washed it most likely it is ruined. the problem most likely is the purge unit. the purge unit is the unit to the far right of the machine. this unit cleans and purges ink from the ink tanks to the printhead. to do this it uses 2 pads one for black and one for color. these pads can be flushed with water to soften up any ink. i would also replace the printhead which can be ordered by calling 1-800-OK-CANON or by going to their website. one other tip, refilled ink cartridges cause more clogging of printheads and purge unit then OEM ink. this is because the ink is thicker then the OEM ink. hope this helps to clairify.
