There was an in depth write up on here recently about how to fix it, it required soldering though, as well as expirence soldering on small electronics. You aren't going to just open it up and clean something. It has with the RF chip being too close to the controller for those buttons.

The Glitch kernel helps filter out a lot of those phantom button presses.
