Sprocket prints blue

HP Recommended
Hello and good day!

The sprocket was a gift for my mum for christmas

We just used it for the first time. The first pucture came out ok, but the second one not. It is one with an almost white background and white clothing but sprocket prints it out in blue. You can also see that the whole right side(the edges) are also tintet in blue and the face looks blurry.

Thank you for your help
