maybe your accidentally holding a button down alot of the time? your using cheap batteries? you have a lemon remote? the remote just overall *****?

I had a remote that was doing that so I opened it up to look at the traces and contacts. There was some type of residue from a previous cleaning or whatever. I took alcohol and a cotton swab to everything and followed it up with a dry swab. That fixed my problem.

Had this type of traces.
