TV volume increases by itself and doesn't decrease or respond to the remote control

My philips TV volume just suddenly while watching TV increases by itself up to 100 (the highest) and when you try to use the remote control to reduce the volume, it doesn't respond at all. So I switch it off from the mains and switch it on again. Sometimes, it comes on and is normal, sometimes, it still stays up. In fact, you can see the blue light flashing as though someone is using the control to increase the volume. If you leave it for a while, the light may stop flashing and you can reduce the volume with the control. Other times, no matter what you do, it's uncontrollable with the control. Please note that the only part of the TV affected is the volume.
I'd be VERY grateful for some help! the volume goes up by itself and stays at maximum and will not stay down. the tv is out of warranty by one day and parts are not available. is there any way i can use a home theater speaker system to control the sound? it has nothing to do with the remote. i am in canada
thank you ruth

    I have exactly the same problem. The first abnormal behavior is increasing of volume to its maximum and then the remote . Evcontrol loses its control on tv. The green light on the tv keeps flashing. If it stabilizes we get the control through remote back, else till the green light is flashing, i cant remote-control the tv. Even the buttons on the side of tv behave abnormally. The volume button would change the menu ..etc..

    I thing i have noticed is, probably it has something to do with some power fluctuations, it seems. If i connect the tv to soem other power outlet or using a separate spike burster, the problem doesnt appear...not 100% sure, though !

    I have exactly the same problem. The volume increases on its own, sometimes up to maximum. The remote does not always control the TV, it seems to be intermittent. The volume is behaving itself at the moment, but it is not working properly with the remote. I'm getting an engineer to come and have a look at it on Tues, so fingers crossed.

    We have a Philips 37" tv and it's doing the exact same thing. The volume is pegged at 100 and I can't get it down. We've already fixed this tv once for a video problem and I don't know if i want to throw anymore money at it.

My plasma TV makes vibration sound when volume increases on TV or any remote of DVD, STBs

It is an issue of automatic gain control software for the audio signal. The issue happens if you have a short outage of your cable signal. The TV tries to amplify the audio signal that isn't even there. When the signal returns, the TV software is not programmed correctly to drop the amplification (not automatic gain decrease -just increase). The only solution is a factory reset of the TV.

The cause of the problem is that the switch of your tv is dirty when cleaning it you must be familiar to the unit and the parts you will remove to prevent any damage you can use a contact cleaner, when applying a contact cleaner you must only spray it to the switch. Consult a expert technician to do it for you actual.

Why does my 26 insignia do the following without touching the remote: volume up and down, changes channels and menu screen pops up

It could well be your remote control has a problem. Try removing the batteries from the remote control and see if the problem goes away, if it does, try new bateries on the remote controller, if that does not work you may have to get a new remote controller
