I recently inherited a Kenwood Trio kd727 dd turntable. I could not get it to work. The linear arm would not move either on auto or manual. I have now dicovered that there is some sort of mask that you need to place on the deck under the Vinyl and this lets the deck know the size of your LP/EP and it will not operate without it. Apparently it does not need to be anything special, good quality cartridge paper is OK, but it needs to be cut or shaped or have holes in it or something. Can u help please ?

5 The belt underneath the top cover housing that moves the arm/needle needs to be replaced. it is a tiny black belt, like the kind found in a tape deck. I found one in a cd-rom drive from a pc computer, it fit great. Hope this helps! Mine sounds great now, and the arm moves around just as it should.

0 Having a similar problem but it appears to be with the tracking motor rather than the belt. When the motor is moving the stylus quickly I am getting around 5v from the servo, when it is tracking, i.e. moving inward after the PE beam is on I'm getting 2v. This makes sense I guess since you wouldn't want the motor to run fast while tracking but can anyone verify these voltages so I can write off the motor?
