Hi there,
If I understand correctly, you want to tune in additional freeview channels on your TV...

If the channels are available in your area but the TV is unable to tune them in, then the signal may not be sufficiently strong enough.
You will need to add a signal booster to your aerial to improve the signal strength and allow you to tune in the remaining channels.

You can get a signal booster from Argos for under £10:

Hi Mike,
The System Lock may have been activated...
Press the Menu button, and select the Lock icon - ensure the lock is turned off. If the TV requests a code, the default code is 0000.

There is no other restriction available on this TV apart from the parental lock.
Can you let me know which channels are affected?
What signal strength is showing for the affected channels?
