I received my CISS unit yesterday, was ordered from Amazon. After wasting my whole day, 12-6 pm, fiddling with the system, I finally came to realize that 3 of the 6 tubes were blocked with dried up ink. 
I removed the tubing and tanks and just ran the cartidges, and voila! everything was printing 100%. in the meantime I got all the debris free from the clogged colors, Black, Magenta, and yellow. I used a combination of hot water dripping in one end of the tubing and frequent trips outside to my compressor to blow everything out. At about 7:30pm I had everything clean and clear, hooked it all back up, was able to prime fille every cart so I know it was free from debris,  and again nothing would print right last night and this morning!! it had just worked with everything unattached. There must be vacuum loss somewhere from what I can tell, but the carts won't work alone now like they had. Colors are leaning towards the greeny side. At this point I wouldnt have minded just having to refill carts every so often but that doesnt even print right. Not happy right now, especially having spent $119.99

I also cleaned the 90 degree elbows and have air filters on etc... everything is hooked up right. I really need a replacement system or something at this point, maybe one with no dried up ink in it.

The green color you are describing, is it prevalent inside your prints? Are all the colors and text coming out sludged and smeared on the paper, or is it just printing in green?

If it is sludged and smeared with ink on the paper, you will need to remove any excess ink that may have been on the print head. I would recommend using some rubbing alcohol and napkins to remove any excess ink. It's possible that the Cyan is mixing with the Yellow ink inside the print head.

I would perform a nozzle check after you clean it, and then a head cleaning if necessary.

Do not over-do the head cleanings. I would say keep it to under 3 head cleaning per few hours. You don't want to over soak the ink pad.

Here is a link from our Youtube channel showing you how to remove the dried ink from the system :
