taoe failure

some rooms in my house which I dry-walled 19 yrs ago are experiencing some sort of failure. the (paper) tape appears to have shrunk. it is showing cracks on the tape edges. I tried the cheap and dirty method of mudding the crack, prime, paint. of course they came back.

doe this mean cut it all out and re-tape? just a dyi'r so I just used the blue or green lid mud.

Paper tape does not shrink, any flaws should have shown up years ago.
More likely somethings moving.
Likely needed more screws added.
Post a picture.
