a buzz can be anything from a pencil or a paperclip that has fallen in to a loose screw somewhere to something wrong with the regulation of the action. You are best off calling a Registered Piano Technician to come and check your piano out -- and tune it if it's time for that! If you don't know of one in your area go to to find one.

Buzzing can also be caused by out of tune strings.

It is also possible that your hinge is buzzing - or rather the long rod that holds the hinge together. Try opening and closing any long hinges before you call the technician. Also, as mentioned before, while you have the piano open, check for something that might be buzzing in the cabinet - a pencil or paperclip - and remove it if it is within reach.

It's also possible that something on top or near the piano is having a sympathetic buzz so take everything off of the piano and try it then.

I once worked for a music school and these are the things the technicians told us to try before calling them in.
