Printer colors

Recently, photos I print have been coming out with too much blue.

I have tried all sorts of adjustments in the printer driver
(color correction, color balance,...) but to no avail. I don't think
this is the problem though, because the colors have been ok in the
past. If I compare a photo I printed a few months ago to one I
printed today the difference is obvious.

I have replaced the color ink cartridge (just in case one of the
colors had run out without causing the printer to flash the "out of
ink" light).

I've pressed the "cleaning" button on the printer to clean the color
heads seven times but it appears to have made no difference.

The printer is only about a year old.
I use it pretty regularly - it wouldn't go more than a couple
of days without being used.
I think the printouts just went blue one day (as opposed to
slowly getting bluer). I can't remember the day, but they don't
seem to be getting any bluer now - they are already quite blue
enough.
I can believe that the print head on one of the colors might
have clogged up. It could be a case of one color missing rather
than a case of too much blue.

I'll try your suggestion - thanks nicademus.
