The record deck is played through a separate pre-amp to all other functions, so it therefore could be a fault in that pre-amp, but I doubt it. You can fit a wide verity of cartridges in record decks that will each give a different response to the sound. But first check that the cartridge connections are correct. Try swapping them around, it might change what you get. But it could simply be that you have a cartridge that produces a lot of bass. Changing the cartridge to a high quality recommended type - by say some hi-fi buffs website or magazine, might solve the problem.
If you have misc LEDs that are flashing without due cause and a motor, I'm betting a Direct Drive motor, that won't spin, I would same you have a damaged microprocessor(computer) within your table that's bad.

The Stanton STR8-60 is a direct drive record deck, so this shouldn't happen unless the platter was damaged but after a little research I found that the Stanton's can get a faulty chip which is meant to regulate the speed and therefore can make it spin erratically.
First - Has the cartridge failed, or has a wire become lose to it? Have you checked the cable comming from deck?
If you have or none of these gives solves the problem, then try reversing the leads on the cartridge so the good ouput gets the missing channel. If you still can't hear it then there's a electronic fault on the left hand channel pre-amp inside the record deck.
your mixer should be grounded by the power cord, and the decks have a seperate ground wire which connects, usually on a screw terminal, to the mixer, which provides the ground for the decks. I would try the headshells to make sure they are tight and connected correctly also make sure the power socket on the wall is earthed properly.
