Default A line of stuck pixels... What to do?

As the title says my screen has a vertical line of stuck pixels. Its only apparent on a blue background, so I deduced that only the blue led is affected.

I haven't given the apps that claim to fix pixels a try yet because I'm doubtful it'll work. What do you think?

Also I recently rooted and am on kitkat. I used wpnomo in the process therefore my write protection is off.
So if I were to flash 4.4 unrooted, would my warranty be valid again despite write protection being off?

Edit: a little research pointed out the fact that those pixel fixing apps won't work on amoled screens. So I'm solely relying on the possibility of sending it back now I guess.

Yes but since I have write protection off does that void warranty as well since it is proof I rooted my device? Would they exchange it anyway?

I don't really think they'll notice. I could be wrong.

Did you unlock the boot loader? If not you'll probably be OK. Just make sure you unroot and have stock on it.

If you did unlock the bootloader....well you read the warning when you did it. SOL. Lol

I've got the AT&T variant so my bootloader is still locked.

For now the line isn't too bothersome because more often than not it's lit up by the other LEDs I'm guessing. The only time the line was entirely dead was on a completely blue background. So I'll just stick with it for now and I'll send it in if it gets annoying.

Thanks for helping!
