Only Stuck Pixels Can Be Fixed

No, dead pixels remain unlit on lcd screens, and they cannot be fixed; however if you have a stuck pixel, sometimes they can be fixed. A stuck pixel results from a manufacturing defect, which leaves one of the pixel's colors turned on for an indefinite amount of time.

Just Replace the Screen

Normally, "dead pixels" are not repairable. A good cost-effective solution is to replace the screen yourself (it is easy even if you are not a technical person - look at some on-line guide). Some websites distribute brand new LCD panels with affordable prices. You should easily find your model number and order a new screen (it is normally within $50-150 depending on model)
