The actuator is either got stuck/blocked or cracked.Mostly its cracked and actuator needs replacement.
The piece that attaches the actuator to the release lever breaks. 
Check for proper operation of the actuators. The actuators are simple stepper motors and are prone to locking up, also on the end of each actuator is a little rubber bumper that will wear down and fail to make full contact with the latch. Replacing the actuator will most likely be the only way to correct the problem.
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    The rear window latch on the '95+ blazer can be adjusted. Really need to know the year you're workin' with.

    Anyway... You have to remove the trim panel on the hatch, then there's two nuts that you can loosen and then move the latch in. Be careful, a little move is a lot of tightening. Of-course, if your pins are loose on the hinge for the window, you may have to either drill the hinge out and put custom bushings in or do as stated above (only temporarily).
    Tools required:Trox T-30 Screw Driver.
    Step #1 - Remove the two screws holding the trim on to the lift-gate
    Screw #2 is a philips screw located at the window latch location (window must be opened to remove).
    Screw #2 is a reinforcing screw for the pull loop on the door.
    Step #3 - Removal of the lift-gate trim panel... The trim panel is held in with spring clips around the bottom as well as a suedo C-clip type retaining around the window area. You can start at either of the bottom corners of the trim panel where you can get a hold of it. The spring clips will come loose, but some may need a little more persuasion. This is where you may need a prying tool. Anyway, if both of the screws are out, then the panel should just pop off.

    Step #4 - Adjust the latch for the glass. Loosen the nuts circled in red only enough to allow you to move the latch. Each time you make an adjustment, close the lift-gate and carefully close the glass to see if the adjustment was correct or if it was too much. The yellow arrow denotes the electronic release striker. The actuator is just below this and can be seen in the picture below

    Step #5 - Reinstall the trim panel making sure that all of the clips are secured. The c-clip type things are a bit of a pain as you have to make sure that the trim panel is behind the plastic posts that stay in the lift-gate frame.
    Thanks for the appreciation.

Rear hatch of my Blazer will not open, inside door lock buttons, inside hatch button, outside hatch button, & outside hatch button not responding and can't get hatch open, I check the fuse under the...

Most probable cause is wiring to the rear hatch, particularly at the flexible wiring tubing at the top of the hatch door frame (with the door open). You may have to remove the lower panel on the cabin side of the door to release the lock.

Where is the fuse for the rear hatch on a 1993 chevrolet blazer? My rear hatch will not open at all. I can hear it ttrying to unlatch the rear windoiw but nothing happens.

If you can hear it then you don't have a fuze problem. More than likely it can be fixed by adjusting the catch in the tailgate. Open you hatch with the key and lower the tailgate. Remove the tailgate interior panel/cover and you'll see the catch for the window. Adjust the catch a little, tighten it up, raise the tailgate and close the hatch. Try your release on the dash again and see if this fixes the problem. You may have to repeat this a couple of times until you get it adjusted to where it needs to be. If this works, then reinstall the tailgate interior panel and you're all done.

Rear hatch wont open 2003 chevy blazer 4x4

I too had an issue with my rear hatch. My father in law cut a huge hole in the plastic only to find out there is a manual operation hole behind one of the carpeted panels in the hatch. You simply move the latch with pliers.

Rear hatch window will not release

This is a common problem on the blazer. If you can hear the rod actuator working, then the actuator rod to latch rod connector has broken. It's plastic, and a poor GM design.
To get the rear hatch open you will need to manualy release it. It can be done by working as much of the plastic tailgate trim you can get loose, from around the top center of the gate, where the latch is. remove the 2 screws that hold the handle on and remove handle. Then pry as much as you need to access the c type latch, and release it by moving it... it's spring loaded and will only move one way. Haveing someone help you lift the hatch while you unlatch it from inside the vehicle helps. After you get the hatch up and the tailgate folded down, make sure the latch is locked in the open position.
The actuator can be repaired, i've done it several times. GM will try and sell you a new one, which is rather costly compared to the $8.00 piece of plastic you need.
Good luck and i hope this helps.
