“Humming/Buzzing with New Sony DVD Player: We just bought a very basic Sony Dvd Player (Model: DVPSR210P) to replace our old DVD/VHS combo. It's very easy to use but we noticed a HUM or BUZZING whenever a DVD is playing. It fades at times then gets loud again at scene transitions, and of course it is very obvious during "quiet" scenes. I tried moving the TV around in the cabinet, tried reposition the DVD player, but these only seem to disrupt the buzz for a few seconds, then it's back. This noise is pretty irritating, especially when watching a quieter film. Could the cables be bad out of box? Is it the player? We don't THINK it's the TV b/c it had great audio when used with our old player (this connected with a regular cable-tv style cable, no a/v). Any help is appreciated!”

Part 1. Why Does DVD Player Making Buzzing Noise?
When your DVD player makes buzzing noise, there are quite a lot of possible reasons. Well, here we have collected some possible causes for that below. You could check these causes to see if there are the exactly the things that make your DVD player noisy when you are playing back DVD discs.
- The stereo speakers are connected properly to the receiver.
- The DVD player is not connected properly to the TV or stereo system. Composite and S-Video cables from the DVD player should not be connected at the same time. Analog and digital audio cables from the DVD player should not be connected at the same time.
- The A/V cable from the DVD player has not been mistakenly plugged into a component video input jack on the TV or receiver.
- The TV or stereo system is set to the appropriate Audio/Video (A/V) input to receive the signal from the DVD player.
- The A/V cables from the DVD player are away from the power cords of the other connected components.
- The TV or stereo system to the A/V input to receive the signal from the DVD player is not well set.
Besides the above-mentioned possible causes, there might be other possible issues as well. No matter what the cause is, you could try the below solutions to get rid of the buzzing noise on DVD player when connected to TV for DVD disc playback.
Part 2. How to Eliminate Buzzing Noise on DVD Player?
Before you try the following troubleshooting steps, you should make sure that the DVD player is on a stable level surface and isn't stacked on top of other audio-video equipment. Then, you may try the below solutions to eliminate buzzing noise on DVD player.
- Check if you connect the cables correctly.
- Unplug the cables, wait for 10 minutes or longer, and then plug the cables again. Now see if the DVD player still makes loud noise.
- Insert your other DVD discs to see if the DVD player making buzzing noise issue occurs to all your DVD discs.
- Try another DVD player to see if it’s normal. If yes, it might be the TV.
- Try other cables. If there are problems with your cables, noisy issue could happen.
- Verify that any effect settings in the TV are turned off.
- Connect your DVD player to a different TV and check whether the noise disappears. If DVD player no longer makes loud noise, it is likely the TV. If DVD player still makes loud noise, it could be the DVD player or the DVD disc.
If DVD player makes loud noise for all discs, the player is the problem. The DVD player may need cleaning. You can use a DVD/laser cleaning disc to do that. And sometimes we may find cleaning is still useless. In this case, you may need to get a new DVD player to see if DVD not playing error is fixed.
If DVD player makes loud noise for certain disc, the disc may be unbalanced which means one side of the disc may be heavier than the other. Some rental or free DVDs have very bad labels on the top, making them unbalanced and causing vibrating noise while playing. In this case, there's probably nothing you can do about it, other than replace it.
