Those buttons on the side of the set itself for volume/channel change its these buttons that are the problem OR it could be the remote simply take the batteries out of the remote so its dead if its still doing it the buttons are bad, there is a workaround but it will mean the back of the set coming off you gaining access to the little board behind those buttons and pulling out the lead that feeds the buttons, that will allow you full control of the set again with the remote, the buttons wont work but they are seldom used

Let me know you understand this please
