Search the web for ICC Color profiles and work flows. Other search terms: RGB sRGB, Adobe RGB, etc
You are correct about potentially removing the settings on the printer as this can change the workflow process at the output stage. Typically you allow the program your are using for editing to manage color space and workflow from beginning to end.
Correct monitor calibration is also important, but ensuring the same color profile throught the entire workflow is what provides consistent results. You will benefit greatly doing some reading to better understand how to control profiles during capture, editing and output. Once you get the work flow dialed in, you will love your printer.

What paper are you printing on? Is it possible you are printing on the wrong side?
What software are you printing from? Can you paste a screen shot of your print settings?

Not sure if you ever found the solution to your problem. I was dealing with the same issues today. I was printing from Photoshop, and had followed every suggestion I found on the internet. I calibrated my monitor, and used the correct settings, but nothing was helping. I came across this youtube video and noticed they were using Print Photo Pro (can be found as a plugin either through LR or PS.) I tried a print through Print Photo Pro and right away the photos were a lot closer to the monitor than before. Maybe this might help you. Good luck!
