Nathan :

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Nathan :

Sorry to hear you're having trouble,

Nathan :

this is a limitation of the tvs internal tuner, which isn't set up for this at the moment.

Nathan :

You can try forcing it by typing in a 0 before the last 2 digits, and try manually programming in each station in the manual add/tune part of the menu in the same manner. Beyond that it is a software issue that you can't resolve.
The only way to resolve that would be if/when Panasonic releases a firmware update for this model that would add that capability.

Nathan :

For a 2010 model tv, it isn't highly likely that they will update it, as they typically only provide updates for the first few years after a model comes out.

Nathan :

The last (and only) update for this model was in 2013. If you don't have that yet, you can go ahead and install it,

Nathan :

You can access the update file here: http://bit.ly/1ExTVfm

Nathan :

First check if you need it:
Press [Menu] button to display Main Menu
Select "Setup" in Main menu, then System Setup, System Information, Software Version

Nathan :

If your current version is smaller than 2712, then complete the update

Nathan :

by downloading the above file to your computer, uncompress the .zip contents to a sd memory card, and inserting that to the tv

Nathan :

If this does not resolve the issue you can await a future update from Panasonic, though honestly that is unlikely to happen. If they don't release an update, your next option would be to purchase an external set top box (decoder/converter box) to pick up those stations, in lieu of using the tvs internal tuner.
