How do I Fix the Discoloration on this Carpet?

I have a few discoloration spots on my carpet that I cannot remove. They are in a location that is not disguisable by moving furnture, etc. I do not know what caused the faded bleached discoloration. I have tried rug shampoo and I have tried ammonia but I am unable to bring the color back to the rest of the carpet.

Do you have any ideas what else I can try? If the carpet has been "bleached" out in that area, is there something I can use to match the spots with the rest of the carpet?

There is some of the carpeting in a closet, but I am concerned that if I cut the patch out, the color difference between the closet carpet and the room carpet will be significant.

I don't have the money for new carpets rights now.

Thank you for your advice.

There's nothing you can do or use, to unfade something.
Only thing I can think of, is to put some throw rugs around, or if they're all in the same area, cover them with a larger area rug.
