This model is about 1 year old. You can load a disc,it spins, but then nothing, it will not progress past the Sony screen. Also, prior to it not reading discs, it would freeze up. Any suggestions or is it done?

Please check information in the TV screen. Is it unknown disk or just nothing.
Unknown disk is indicate your lens is unable to read the disk. It could be because bad disc, dirty lens or defective lens.
If nothing information in your screen, probably the problem is in your small motor to spin the disk.
So please check the root cause so you can locate the problem precisely before take repair / replacement.
Sony machines have notoriously bad lasers. I find that with the slim if you have a small amount of nail polish remover on a cotton bud and dab the laser (whilst off and without touching the laser) that does the trick
I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.
ok...well all of you people are just **** him!
the actual problem is that you probably dropped the ps2 and the case lid got a bit lose......
what you have to do (if you dont want to buy a whole ps2 case again) is tap the ps2 on the top of the lid when it goes into the cd browser screen and it will work perfectly fine
just make sure you dont tap i too hard or else we will have another problem...lol!
the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
I had the exact same problem - I bought this DVD player TODAY at a garage sale for 5 bucks, they said it wouldn't read the disc, so I looked it up and found this thread. I did what that other person did, in that I had a DVD loaded into the player, then I took the top off. The DVD worked perfectly! I actually didn't even have to touch anything inside. I then put the top back on, making sure not to tighten the screws too hard. I think what it was is that this is a very slim unit, and there really isn't much room for the motor to spin the DVD, especially if there is even a 1 millimeter bend in the casing - it prevents the DVD from spinning around. I would reccomend never putting anything on top of this DVD player.
