Dead TV Pixels

So it appears now in the last week whenever I turn on my TV I have some dead pixels. Started as a single vertical blue line, now it just started having a vertical red one as well. After a few minutes of running the lines disappear but they are still annoying. Anyone recommend a good program to idenify and eliminate dead pixels?

1. Remove cord from back of TV
2. Remove TV from current location
3. Place new TV in position previously occupied by old TV
4. Put cord into new TV

What type?
How old?
What size?

It doesn't sound like dead pixels, because those are individual dots. If an entire line is gone or a certain color, it's either the color controller for that row, or a board issue. I'd estimate that it's time for a new TV since repair costs are typically as much as a new one.

They can be fixed at a reasonable cost if you have the ability to troubleshoot to the component level. Unless you are in the electronics repair business you will most likely spend more on tools and manuals than what t would cost to replace it.

Vizeo 26" it's probably about 4 years old. Don't have the cash to replace it, as much as I want to get a bigger one. Could it possibly be the cables? It started doing it a while after I replaced all the cables.

I'm out of the business now but that was my first thought as well.
