Why do all my photos come out in tones of blue/purple?

I've tried multiple film packs so it's definitely the camera. All the photos come out in weird blue/white hues. Almost like monotone but not quite. You can still see most of the images so it's still useable just about, but it's a weird feature I'd like to fix.

if you happened to be shooting in very cold weather, that’s likely why. When a Polaroid photograph is developing, several sequential chemical reactions are occurring in a perfectly timed fashion. At least that's the idea. When our film is in an extremely warm or cold environment, the chemical reactions are no longer occurring exactly when they were intended to. At colder temperatures chemical reaction rates slow down considerably.

try taking pictures at room temp!
