I presume you mean bleed-over from one pixel to another - because the screen has been hit with something and locally broken the matrix. I have never heard of any way to fix this - the LED/LCD light matrix is manufactured integral with the plastic and glass of the screen, so there is no way to replace damaged LED's or LCD's.

If you mean a backbleed on an LCD TV so you have an area of fuzziness or pale glow over the entire area, google this search phrase - screen backbleed - and you will find some blogs about pushing gently on the screen to try to make the layers make contact again - though certainly does not sound like a permanent fix.

Find your make and model on the back, and contact a TV Repair vendor (your Search the List category) or two to ask about repair costs - but I suspect you are looking at hundreds (more with giant screen) for a screen replacement.
