New samsung keeps flicking channels/volume up/down.

I recently bought 2 Samsung 64" Series 8 Full HD 3D Capable Plasma TV(PS64E8000GM) Only one is currently set up, however, it keeps randomly turning itself on and off, flicking through channels repeatidly, and turning the volume up to max by itself.I've tried the usual unplugging/replugging everything, taking batteries out of the controller/putting new ones it, wiping the on-t.v 'buttons'.
When it starts flicking through channels the remote controller becomes unresponsive, and usually ends up in me just pulling the plugs out.
I've read a few forums with others having similar problems, but no real answers have come to light..
Any thoughts/ideas on how to solve this?
