My television volume goes up on its own. Tv information also will be displayed at times without touching the television or remote. When the volume goes up or the tv information is displayed, the infrared sensor blinks and will not respond to the remote control or "buttons" (tv does not really have buttons, only areas you can touch). We unplug the tv, and after a awhile, the tv will do it again. It is also worth noting that the area on the television you touch to decrease volume is not working. You can turn the volume up and down with the remote control until the volume goes up or the tv information is displayed and the infrared sensor blinks. I have opened up the back of tv, but I am not sure what the problem is. If no one responds to this post, I am going to try and replace the motherboard. If that does not work, I will work backwards towards the infrared sensor. I would greatly appreciate some input.

Lg taped the infrared sensor into place, and it was jarred loose at some point during transport. The clip holding the ribbon into place was missing. I ordered a new infrared sensor on ebay for $8 and replaced it. There is only one plug and one ribbon on the IR sensor board. Hope this helps someone else.
