RCA 52" Menu Keeps Popping Up and Down

We've had our RCA 52" HDTV for about 2 years and all of a sudden the Menu started popping up constantly. It will pop up over and over again. I have to hit ok and exit on the remote or the panel on the TV sometimes to get it to go away and other times it will go away on its on but pops back up again within a few seconds. Sometimes, it will do this atleast 30 times in a 5 minute period while other times I can watch the TV for an hour or more without it doing it at all. Ive tried everything I know~ unplugged the TV for a few minutes, changed batteries in the remote, and checked to make sure the buttons on the remote or the TV panel were not stuck. Any ideas at all? My warranty just happened to expire a month before this happened. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I see this alot at the shop ... the front panel buttons have become damaged. THe best coarse of action is to replace the front button cuircit board assembly... **** there is a tempery fix untill you get the part... remove the front panel and take button cuicit board out...just use remote to control the tv. This is also a way to test to see if this is the problem.. if you romove the connector to the buttons and the problem goes away then the buttons are the problem. you get get this cuicit board at union electronics. You have to get the extended model number off the back ussally d52w20yx1 or yx2 or yxsomething...not to difficult a repair

It worked. We did it last night. What causes this kind of this to happen? Is it just a short or is it some kind of malfunction with this particular model? Again, Thank you so much for your help!!!
