I recently got a model 2 off of ebay (I also have a broken model 1 that can power on but the tray can't eject but I've give up on that model). At first, all I had to do was replace the fuse to get it working (wouldn't power on). It made a grinding type noise when it first tried to read the CD but stopped making the noise shortly after and worked. I put it away for about a month and now it tries to read the CD but fails shortly after starting the game. I cleaned the lens but that didn't fix it. I'm wondering though if these are reliable enough to bother purchasing another in the future. Feedback appreciated.
