It could be as simple as a dirty head or the drive is busted. If it is just dirty, get an optic drive cleaner, run the cleaner.

Can i reboot my ps3 using lenux boot disk

Yes, Ofcourse.
    • 1 Select and download a Linux distribution to download. Your options are Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE and Yellow Dog. Ubuntu and Yellow Dog have better support for PS3 than OpenSUSE and Fedora. Links are provided in the first Resource.
    • 2 Locate the boot loader included with your Linux distribution of choice and rename it to "otheros.bld" so the PS3 recognizes it. Your bootloader is either named "kboot" or "petitboot" followed by a version number.

  • Create a folder named "PS3" on the CD or Flash drive. Create another folder named "otheros" inside the "PS3" folder. These folder titles are case-sensitive--enter them exactly as they appear here.
  • 4 Save the "bootloader.bld" file in the "otheros" folder. If you are using a CD, burn it now. See the second Resource on how to burn a CD using tools included in Windows.
  • 5 Insert the Flash drive or CD into the PS3.
  • 6 Go to the "Settings" column of the PS3 main menu, select "System Settings," then "Install Other OS." The PS3 then searches for and starts installing the boot loader from the Flash drive or CD.
  • 7 From the "Settings" column again, select "System Settings," then "Default System." Choose "Other OS" from the options listed on the right.
  • 8 Burn the .iso of your Linux distribution of choice to a CD, if you want to boot the PS3 from a CD. If you're using a Flash drive, see the third Resource on how to put a running Linux installation on a Flash drive.
  • 9 Remove any disc already in the PS3 and turn it off.
  • 10 Insert the CD or Flash drive. The Flash drive goes into one of the PS3's USB ports, located on the front face, in the bottom right-hand corner. If you insert a CD, the PS3 automatically turns on.
  • 11 Turn on the PS3, if it hasn't turned itself on already. Select your Linux distribution from the boot loader menu to boot the PS3 from the Flash drive or CD.

    Red de scaling light won't shut off

    Removing the red descaling light is simple.
    1. Fill reservoir with half vinegar and half water (no need for the special descaling product from Tassimo).
    2. Turn on machine.
    3. Insert yellow cleaning disc found in back of machine.
    4. This is where most people have the their problem...You must hold the start button for 3 to 5 seconds for the descaling program to start. Both green and red light will flash.
    5. Once started, use a large cup to catch the output of water.
    6. The machine will cycle through the descaling program in about 30 to 45 minutes. Be paitent!!!
    7. Once completed, run many cups of plain water through the system to remove the vinegar taste.
    8. Red light problem is solved.

    Hope this works for you.

    My playstation 3 will light up green then yellow

    1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

    2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

    3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

    4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game. At last, eject finally pushed hubby's NBALive out of the playstation.

    PS3 won't turn on

    hi Torgsrus.
    PS3 Light sequence
    The following pictures illustrate the CECHX0X model, however the light sequence is applicable to all PlayStation 3 models.

    No lights are on:

    When no lights are on, this means that the main power switch on the back of the ps3 is off or the PS3 is unplugged. When the main power switch is off (the '0' is pressed) and you will not be able to access any features of the PS3 system. To turn on the PS3 system, make sure the main power switch is on (the 'I' side is pressed down).

    If the PS3 does not turn on:
    · Make sure the power cord is not frayed or damaged
    · Try using another power cord, if available
    · Make sure the main power switch on the back of the PS3 system is turned on
    · If you continue to have issues contact our Technical support.

    Solid Red:

    When the power status light is solid red, this means that the PS3 system is off (or in standby mode).
    Standby, mode means the PlayStation 3 system is off, but is ready to be turned on by pressing the power button.

    If the ps3 system will not turn on when you press the power button, this is an issue with the PS3 system and you will need to send your system in for service.

    Solid Green:

    When the power status light is solid green, this means that the PS3 is turned on.
    You should be able to navigate the XMB, play games, access the Playstation store,etc.
    To turn of the PS3, simply press and hold the power button for two or more seconds.
    If the power status light is green ,and you are experiencing problems- have a look on our forums for troubleshooting.

    Flashing Red:

    When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly overheated.

    This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
    If this happens:
    · Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.
    · If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like an entertainment area, move it to a more open area.
    · Leave the ps3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.
    · If you continue to have issue, you may need to send the console in for service.

    Flashing Green:

    When the power status light flashed green, it means that the PS3 system is turning off. Please wait while the system turns off.

    If the PS3 system does not shut down immediately, it may be trying to finish save data to the Hard Drive. If it is, do not turn the main power switch on the back off as it may cause data on your hard drive to be corrupted.

    If the green light continues to flash green, the ps3 system maybe trying to write to the hard drive, shutting down or running programs. It may take longer to shut down depending on when you pressed the power button. If the green power light flashed for a very long time, you can try holding the power button down for 5 seconds, the console will beep and should turn off. Then try to restart the PS3 system.
    Flashing Green, Yellow and Red:

    When the power status light goes from green, to yellow, to green, then to a flashing red, this means that they may be an issue with an internal part with in the PS3 system. This may be caused by a variety of reasons and would need to be diagnosed by our support line.

    When the PS3 power light flashes in this order, you can contact our Support Line for further assistance.

    Solid Blue:

    When the disk status light is remaining a solid blue, it means the disc is inside the PS3 system. If you wish to eject the disc, hold down the eject button for 2 seconds and the blue disc status light will flash indicating the PS3 system is attempting to eject the disc . (NB: the power indicator light will always be a solid green).

    If the disc is inserted into the ps3 system, but does not show up on the xmb or will not play, this may indicate an issue with the reader- check our guide Discs are not loading in my PlayStation 3? for further troubleshooting.

    Flashing Blue:

    When the disc status light is flashing blue, it means a disc was just inserted into the ps3 system or a disc is trying to eject from the ps3 system. Depending on when you pressed the eject button, it may take longer for the disc to eject. (NB: the power light will always be a solid green)
    If the light constantly flashes blue, it may be an issue with the disk being stuck in the system. If this happens there is no way to remove the disc yourself if you are using an orginal 60GB PlayStation.

    Pover up trouble

    sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?
