Question about Stanton STR8-80 Turntable
If all the wires check out OK and the record needle cartridge is fully connected then It must be the actual preamp of the unit, The str8-80 have a digital preamp that allows the record player to bu used with or without a standard riaa preamp. and DSP that allows pitch coerrection while changing the speed, this is a feature useful to DJ's, however; if you are like me, then I modded the turntable by bypassing all the circuitry and sending a signal straight from the needle to the RCA out. Obviously now the pitch correction is disabled and the line out feature is disabled. It is now like a regular record player for listeners who dont care to change pitch or need pitch correction. The motor functions and speed controls still work like normal. I simply modded the audio signal path. You will have to know how to solder and mod electronics to do so.

Check the ground lead on the turntable is connected to the grounding post on the receiver.
Also check all wires from the rca jacks to the stylus for continuity and make sure they are all connected properly at the stylus head.

It sounds like the wires that go from the cartridge mainly the grounds are broken. You need to use an ohm meter to check them.
