It could be you scanned Antenna Digital TV and not Cable Digital TV. Antenna goes up to 69, and Cable goes up to 135. That model number is ***** your serial number for that TV, it should look like 50PCxxxx-uA.aaaaaa... X= numbers A=letters.

If you Autoscan, see if your model makes you select your choice of what you scan for, or if it goes through ALL the choices by itself.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
