You need to clean the print heads, from the sound of it, you need to run the cleaning more than once. When you clean the heads there is a test, if it fails the test, clean again, test again. Repeat if necessary. On the second or third in a row the printer goes into its extreme cleaning mode and it takes longer.
If this does not help, many printers use separate print heads and they do go bad over time (usually 2 or 3 years for home printers). If it is time to replace them, look carefully at the prices and if they are expensive, consider replacing the printer. It may be cheaper or very close to the same.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Your running out of blue ink or the blue cartridge is going bad.

Then most likely the cartridge is bad

Is there a print-head cleaning/clogging feature on the printer tools? The tube to the ink-pods not bent/blocking?
