Question about Audio Players & Recorders
If the stylus (not needle) is good then you might have got an incorrect earth wire connection on the cartridge or a bad connection to it. Also check the plugs and wiring between it and the amp. The earth connection might be broken there.

First and foremost, make sure you plug into directly to the PHONO input of your receiver. If your unit does not have a PHONO input, then you wont be able to hear much coming from the unit. The PHONO input is a pre-amplified input, and this turntable requires an amplified input in order to transmit it's signal correctly. Just using an AUX or LINE IN will not have enough power to increase the signal of the turntable. You have the option of purchasing a PHONO PRE-AMPLIFIER (range in price from US$15-30), or purchasing a new receiver with a PHONO INPUT!
If you have it connected to your phono input, and still no sound, your turntable may have either faulty RCA cables (red/white cables), or a bad tonearm - in either case will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

It's called a stylus. What red or white caps are we talking about? Some phono cartridges come with stylus guards that flip up out of the way for play or down to protect the stylus from damage while in storage or during tonearm balancing. The stylus needs to touch the record groove directly.
