Laserjet 3600N Prints Yellow all the Time!

We have an HP Laserjet 3600n (color) that is printing way too much yellow.  Like all the time.  We print something gray, its dark yellow.  We print something blue, it comes out green.  We tried resetting it, reinstalling it on the server or to an individual workstation.  

We've changed the cartridges, same issue.

If we force it to print grayscale only, it will leave the yellow out.

    Is it printing in 3 or 4-colour mode?
    Have you tried calibrating it?

    It is in default mode, which I assume is full-color mode.  I have run diagnostics and the printer just doesn't seem to have any idea it is printing too much yellow.  Calibration did not work either.
