Can I fix a couple of dead/Stuck pixes on my LED TV?

Hi.

I have a Sony KD55XG1 and I've noticed a couple of dead/stuck pixels in the middle of the screen. They aren't a big deal and sitting back in the viewing area you can only really see them when the screen is showing a lot of white, I was watching Techmoan and noticed it!

Is there something I can try myself to bring them back to life without risking damage to the LED screen?

Thanks, I might leave it if theres the chance of causing damage. The TV has plenty of warranty left on it and it's only noticeable when it's a bright white background anyway. If the problem spreads I'll get in touch with Sony. Not wanting to replace the set just yet as I've heard plenty of horror stories about people getting replacements with more dead pixels then the one they sent in.
