    You will either need to send it in to Apple if it's under warranty or you can still have it fixed, you'll just need to pay for the repairs. There is nothing you can do on your own unfortunately

    Supposedly if you "massage" the area with the dead pixel some times it comes "unstuck". I would try that first. Other than that, I think Apples policy on dead pixels, is that there needs to be seven of them for Apple to make a repair order. Otherwise you'll have to pay for it, if it is fixable, which I think, the only way to fix it is to replace it, and that would probably be pretty expensive.

    I have tried the massage the area method, and it worked for me.
