I am a dentist using digital x-rays in my office. For some reason when I print out my x-rays there's a reddish hue to it. Everything else is printing fine.
I calibrated the cartriges, printed a test page, cleaned the cartriges. All that tests out fine.
My colour cartrige is a little low-looking but I haven't received a low-level warning yet.
What else can I try?

There is a function in your camera setup menu to format memory cards. It won't make any difference to the reddish hue of the pictures, but it will delete everything on the card.
No, you can use any SD card, and in fact you are using the card you have. Your camera can take and display pictures, so it is using already. These cards are digital- they either work or they don't. You might get a corrupted picture file but a memory fault wouldn't just add a hue to all shots like a film might.
It won't hurt to get a new card and try it- then you can tell them that you did what they said and it didn't help. The card will be of use as a spare or to hold more shots on holiday. At some point you need to return this camera as it seems to have a fault, but it sounds like they are trying to blame the old card instead of giving you a replacement or repair.
Depending on your TV, you may have a Color Temperature (Color Temp) and/or Hue setting in the menu. Use these options to adjust the picture to the setting that best suits your viewing preference. If your TV has a Color Temp setting, you will normally have the following options to select from:
Cool: Gives the picture a cooler, slightly bluish appearance.
Neutral: Gives the picture a neutral, more natural look and appearance.
Warm: Gives the picture a warmer, slightly reddish appearance.
If your TV has a Hue setting, follow the appropriate step below to make adjustments:
Move the setting to the right to reduce the reddish appearance.
Move the setting to the left to reduce the greenish appearance.
If you don't use the color on a fairly regular basis (once a day), the
cartridge tends to dry out and plug up. You can try and wipe the
cartridge outlets with a damp cloth or even use a little alcohol, and
run the cleaning feature several times, but may well have to just
replace the cartridge.
Panasonic has discovered a premature component failure with a limited number of PV-DV953 (2003 Model) and PV-GS200 (2004 Model) 3CCD camcorders, which may cause an abnormal camera picture (incorrect color reproduction, reddish, noisy image, etc).
