Question about Stanton STR8-30 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.

Tips for a great answer:
If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.
Google "Stanton T.60 Turntable cartridge" and sift through the multitude of offerings.
