    PS3 Flashing Black Pixels

    My PS3 is flashing black pixels. At least I think they are pixels. Pixels are usually dots but these are little black rectangles that are flashing. It's odd because I put in MGS4 and I'm seeing no rectangles, but on COD there is. It's not many, maybe 3 rectangles, but it is concerning me. Are these dead pixels, stuck pixels, or is this normal for some games? Should I try a pixel jogger? Can post pictures if needed. Please respond back.

    Its a recently reballed 80gb fat. I don't think the video card is dying because I've tested several games and this is what I found.
    Modern Warfare: Runs very well
    Modern Warfare 2: Runs very well
    Killzone: A few green pixel flickers in the opening sequence, but gameplay looks to be fine
    Battlefield 3: A screen flicker or 2 before match (the screen flickered not pixels), but gameplay is fine (BF3 interface does have a flicker effect so the flickers could have been that)
    MGS4: Gameplay is fine
    MGS HD collection: All 3 games included have fine gameplay

    MW3 is the only game that seems to have this (the videos above are of MW3). Could it be that fat PS3s just don't run MW3 as well as newer PS3s?
