If you have the cash, I would recommend just buying a new one rather than paying that much money and time to get it fixed.

There has to be some reason why this happened.

How long have you had it?
If it is new, it could be a defect and warrant a replacement
Has it taken a tumble?
Connector could have come loose but it would have been an all or nothing, not a slow death of pixels
Any water damage?
Shorting out could have killed the pixels
Charging Properly?
I'd assume the device has measures for over-charging or surges but you never know.. Blown/leaking capacitor

I tried to be open minded but I was afraid my brain would fall out.

Checking the connector is only for if you are truly desperate. You need to open the system up and gain access to the screen which requires you to take everything out which in itself requires tools.. (Screwdrivers and I recommend a small pair of pliers)

If you do decide to go that route, there are a few videos on youtube of people completely disassembling their Vita but again, I only recommend this if you have no other options because generally it never ends well. (Not that people break it, just you break warranty and there is no guarantee it isn't just broken)

Not 100% sure, I know they used to but you got next to nothing for it.

You'd probably get more if you put in on ebay and advertised the problem and how it is just for parts.
