SOURCE: Sound very distorted
This turntable has a preamp switch on it, which is probably on and what is causing the distortion. Take off the metal record platter by lifting up on the two holes gently. Turn the pre-amp switch to 'off' and then try it again. This is probably it...
Or you can plug it into an input that doesn't have a preamp and that should work.

this turntable absolutely came with a ground wire that must connect to the gnd connection on the amp. maybe it got torn off or something but there should be clues on the back of the turntable as to what happened to it.
once the lead is found it must be connected to the amp gnd connect to get rid of the hum. this might require someone with soldering skilz or what have you in order rig up a new wire.
a tech might have to remove the bottom and solder in a new wire if it is cut or ripped off at the housing. This is common as people forget to unhook the gnd wire from the amp when moving things around.

you will need a little box called a pre-amp. This hooks up between the turntable and newer receivers without a phono input. A basic explaination & drawing of this type of setup can be found here
