My Canon MP980 printer recently started printing color incorrectly.

At first, all colors were pinkish. I changed the color inks as some said this might fix it. Now green prints as a grayish color, and blue prints as purple. Red, orange and yellow appear to be OK.

What's the matter with my printer?

If you used official new cartridges, then the next likely thing is the jets are clogged. Most printers come with a cleaning cycle - Canons have a normal and deep clean. You can find it in the printer drivers.
