Disabling side buttons on 54.0 remote

When the tech programmed out remotes, he disabled input from the side buttons on our remotes so we would not hit them by mistake when using the remote.  Somehow this has become undone and we frequently hit them with out thumb when using the front functions keys.  I have no idea how he did it or how to refix it so that they won't work when touched.  Anyone know how to do this?

You can place your remote in limited mode. Limited mode keeps you from accidentally changing the input on your TV. Heres how you set the remote to limited mode. Press the HOME button twice, Select Settings, Select Remote Control, Select Limited Mode to on.
