You need to run that black wire to ground, perhaps a screw on your electrical outlet. You also need a pre-amp with your turntable, I use the mcm 40-630 you can find it many places for sale.

How do I fix my sound on my acer AX3400?

Try looking in your sound mixer settings for the default audio. Make sure it is set to the stero jack and not the digital coax. altho windows is suppose to automacticly detect what is pluged into the sound card, many times it does not and will default to the digital coax. These settings are found under control pannel

Hope this helps

No sound being amplified through RCA jacks... I can hear it coming off the literal record player, barely, but when plugged into receiver, there is no sound being transmitted to the speakers. Could the...

The first thing to do is uplug the jacks and put your finger on the input to the amp. If it buzzers then the amp is working. If the turntable has jacks pluged into it pull them out and touch the end of them too!
If you can't do that, then disconect the wires to the cartridge, with the amp on touch each wire (one at a time). You should hear a buzz on two wires (left & right) and nothing on the other two. If you don't then the cables are faulty or the amp is. If you do then the cartridge has gone.

There is very low sound from turntable to teac

Check out if the earth connections are are good in the jack.
Are you connecting to a dedicated socket for turntables on your amp? Turntables have to have a pre-amp stage (unlike CD/Tape) before they go to the main pre-amp. If the Teac doesn't have a turntable socket, you will need to buy a pre-amp for the turntable.

How did the internal wiring come out? Was it pulled, does it look like someone attempted to repair it, and didn't do a good job? Unfortunately, you have to open up the unit to see where exactly those wires were removed from. Those are the tonearm wires, which attach to the PCB which distributes the sound to the RCA cables. If those were pulled out from the tonearm, you have to have the entire tonearm replaced (not diy work). If it came loose from the board - VERY ODD that all 5 cables came loose, but it was bought on ebay, so anything is possible - you need to open up the turntable and solder the cables back (easier said than done). Yes, the black wire is the ground. I suggest you take it to a qualified service center for a diagnosis. You might be able to recover the costs from the seller. Hope you didn't leave any feedback as of yet. It might be the only thing you can hold over the seller's head.
