Round corner edges


I have rounded corner edges in a 3 year old house and the seams are coming undone. There appears to be metal corner beads and just applying compound does not work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

In pictures 1 and 3 the cracking is beyond where the corner bead would terminate.It is mostly in a straight line.I would guess that is a seam there in the drywall that is bad.I don't know why they would have put a joint there but that's what it looks like from the pics.
The last pic looks like it could be a bad joint at a bead.Only fix is to take it out and replace from scratch.

Looks like the corner bead was applied using mud- the paper face kind. For some reason the mud has failed.
IMO- like Mako1 stated, it needs to be pulled and start over.

Wow , This is happening all over the house. So I may need to have someone come in and do this. It will not be the original installer.

Thanks to both of you.

Metal wall studs or wood?

It almost looks like someone framed with extremely wet (wood) studding, and of course now it's dry and shrinking.
