My monitor screen is getting shrunk at the middle.

I have a monitor which is Samsung SyncMaster 550s. My monitor screen isgetting shrunk at the middle very often (Manual calls it Pincushion).When I hit it hard it gets OK.

I have tried to remove the back cover but failed. Could you please tell me how to open it or fix this problem.
