Hmmm Fluorescent...Do you mean LCD Display? ( fluorescent does not have a bulb...) Try and replace it but the trick is to shine a light into the display and see if the digits are still there. Fluorescent ones are more difficult because of the oscillator/excitor for the tube or display..check if -30 volts is present and if filament ac voltage is present.. For the CD you must check your eye curve: Do not know what you mean by Motor sounds...and it is a bitch to fix tightly assembled units...
