Hi, the reason why the game keeps freezing at that certain point is most likely due to a bug in the game. I know NHL 12 use to have freezing issues that weren't patched. Since the game is outdated there is no fix for this issue. I would recommend maybe updating to a newer version of the game (NHL 17 etc.) and playing from there.
This is the 2nd most common problem
with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be
replaced. There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it
yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a
technician who has experience. There are many things that can go
If you do, you must disassemble your
drive and take out the laser to see exactly which laser you will need
If you can play your games OFFLINE just fine, then you may have a hard drive problem. You will need to try the above and then repost with your new findings.
Please let me start off by saying that I'm sorry you're having issues with such a great system and I hope that I can easily resolve your problem.
The biggest reason I've seen that causes the system to freeze is an inconsistent internet connection. I play MW2 online quite a bit and for a while I had to reset my system every so often because it would freeze. The way I fixed it was I replaced my old router (antique) with a newer one and kept all the settings to default with the exception of the WPA key; that way if it did disconnect it was easily put back on the network. My first suggestion is to check your internet connection and router.
The second reason that a system could freeze would be that you are playing the game in a different way than what it is meant to be played. Take GTA4 for example. My system freezes if I attempt to put too many cheats in within a short period of time. Many people like to do hacks and stuff for Modern Warefare 2 (MW2) that alter their levels, weapons, titles, etc. If you have tried to alter your game in any way then yes, it will freeze, and you will need to start over and play it the correct way.
The last usual reason that your system could be freezing is that it's overheating. To avoid this, make sure it's:
1) Not on a carpet surface. Set it on something flat.
2) Well ventalated. Do not cover up the ventallation covers and allow it about 1 or 2 inches of clearance all around.
3) Taken care of. Make sure to dust it off and take some canned air to it on occasion.
Good luck. If i've helped you, please help me by giving me the appropriate rating. Please post a comment if you have any further questions regarding this topic. Thank you for trusting Fixya to resolve your problems.
Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL
Try playing your game without Xbox live at first. If it doesn't freeze up, then you have an internet connection problem. Try reconnecting wires. If it does freeze up without Xbox live, it may just be the game.
