Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. In order to assist you, I need to ask for more info.

1) What exactly do you see on your screen right now?

2) Why do you have to keep running channel scans- is your set continuously losing channels?

3) How do you receive broadcasts on the set now- is there a cable box, SAT box, or HDTV antenna connected?

Please elaborate and we can proceed.

Or, if you're seeing LOCKED on any of the MENU's, then you need to enter the parental code to unlock it. Per Pro Scan: Note: If you forget your password, you can use “8899” to enter any menu locked. So try that and let me know how it works out.

If you need further assistance let me know. Before you go, PLEASE DO click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of your screen. That is how I am credited for my efforts by the site. You can follow up any time as needed at no additional cost.
