When I first started playing, I buzzed a lot, especially when playing chords that involved fretting all 4 strings. I have learned to isolate and minimize buzz by doing the following: hold the chord and pluck each string individually--each string should ring clearly and cleanly. If a string buzzes (or is muted) when you pluck it, adjust the finger position on that string until the string plays cleanly when plucked.
Then again, maybe I'm lucky that the buzzing has always been a problem with me, not with my ukulele!

Live long, prosper, and play your ukulele.
