Weird Radio Problem

I bought a 2007 Civic EX Coupe w/ the premium radio a few weeks ago. Yesterday the radio started switching modes (fm1, fm2, am, etc) on its own while I was driving down the road. Not sure where to start looking for the cause of this problem. It seems that the radio is shorting out, the screen blanks out then it comes back on a differ mode. Before I tear my dash out to look behind it, I didn't know if there was some common grounds to check out 1st or fuses. Then I thought it could be in the steering wheel because of the radio controls built into it. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Don't believe it is a fuse problem as it would most likely not even work.

Sounds like a bad connection. Maybe within the radio unit itself...
