I have a Hong Kong Shinsonic DVD-160 machine, h4x3d to play DVDs from all countries. Anyway, on some DVDs the machine makes a really LOUD buzzing sound, I've noticed that it sometimes shuts up if I sit it at an angle, but then it damages the discs so I dunno what to do.
What could be causing this?
DVD ROM drive not positioned correctly inside the machine itself?

Hong Kong stuff isn't THAT bad, the fact that it's all bad is just a myth because of how many cheap bootlegged goods they flog at markets.
This one was from a good DVD retailer.

I have similar problems with mine. Of course, the reason I have problems with mine is because I accidentally dropped it off a 5 foot high shelf onto concrete. Personally, I'm surprised mine plays ANY DVDs.

That's probably not helpful to you, but who knows, maybe yours got dropped off a shelf befor you bought it... *shrug*


All I can tell yous is that any cd drive I have ever had in my computer has made a very loud buzzing noise whenever putting a scratched up disc in it. I didn't know you had to mod DVD players for regions...
