Yellow/red cast on my prints using Lexmark P4350
I print my photos on a Lexmark P4350, and have noticed for a long time now that the prints have a yellow or red cast to them - light cream is turned yellower, dark brown becomes a lighter rusty brown, even grass or leaves seem to have a yellow tinge to them. The photographs look as they should on the screen, and in HTML. I'm not sure if I should change anything in Photoshop Elements, the options for colour/quality tweaking in the printer itself are very limited. Does the brand of glossy photo paper make any difference? I've been using HP 175g/m^2 for as long as I've had this relatively new printer. I'm so frustrated because my photopgraphy is improving in leaps and bounds otherwise. Can anyone help please?

I'm not too familiar with Lexmark printers, but paper definitely does make a difference. They aren't all the same shade of white to begin with, nor do they hold the ink the same when you print on it.
