Sounds like you do have dirt trapped between the housing and the screen,
instead of using compressed air (could ruin your screen if you use too close
to the screen) try running a thin business card all around the screen.
(between the screen and the housing of course)
If that doesn't work you can remove the plastic part of the housing around
the screen by removing the 4 rubber screw plugs that you can see around the
screen and unscrew the 4 torx screws that you'll find under these plugs
(also torx-8 like the ones from the battery cover)
This way it should be easier to clean out any dirt that might have been
caught between the screen and the housing.
Hope that this will do the job.

good luck and keep us posted,
