Mrburgh , First thing to try is another set of good quality replacement batteries and wipe the remote and TV sensor with a soft cloth to clean of any dust. Also find links below that tell how to test and clean/repair remotes when buttons not functioning well. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Mrburgh since this is only happening for the volume, I'd suggest you try a universal remote on your TV and see if that works better. If it shows the same results you may have issues with the IR receiver board on your TV. Let us know what you find out.
