Radio beeps and searches through stations

Hi all!

I have a huge problem that occures more and more often. The Renault I have is a Mégane II from 2000.

When I turn the radio on it starts searching through all stations, both on FM and AM. It stays on one channel for 2-3 seconds before it makes 2 loud beeps and then switches to the next station.
If I put a CD in the slot it starts searching through all the tracks! It starts from the last song, plating it for 2-3 seconds and the switches to the other. Beeping twice between the tracks here aswell.

These beeps get higher and higher each time (like the radio is turning the volyme up itself). This is completely random, if I switch the radio off I might get lucky and it works after an hour or so. One way to make it work though, is if I keep pressing (constantly) one of the buttons, believe it is the one at the bottom right end. But since my finger start to hurt after awhile this isn´t such a good solution...

I have searched the forums here but didnt find an answer to the problem. I also sent a email to Renault, they asked me to contact my local Renault dealer/garage (of course). But they seemed to be aware of the problem...

I would be very glad if anyone here know how to fix it? I´m in great need of the radio during work.

Thanks in advance // Ocke.

ps. Great idea with a Renault forum btw! ds.
