The problem is either from the remote or the television, there has been so much heat on the control panel of the television, so it has melted some lead off a part of the control panel and bridging it to another part, so it is increasing both the volume and changing the channel in an upward direction.
The solution is to change the control panel of the television or correct it by using a soldering iron to melt off the lead from where leads meet.
If you remove the battery from the remote and it still does the same, then it is confirmed that it is the televisions control panel. But if after removing the battery it stops scrolling up, then the problem is from the remote and the solution is for you to replace the remote with a new one.
First check for a button which is stuck down (activated) on the TV & remote. I have seen a stuck button on a remote box continually sending a command to the TV.
Also, try unplugging the set so the microprocessor will reset.
Other contributors might have seen this exact problem, and provide an exact solution.
If you have a compact flourescent lamp in the room, this can cause some models of TV sets to go nuts, or not respond to the remote. These compact flourescent lamps use a frequency band that is close to the data carrier freqency of the remote.
