Channel scan disabled on Seiki SE40FYM

Were out and about and trying to watch some TV. Weve got a Seiki SE40FYM. In the past, I was able to rotate the King Jack antenna, then select menu then channel, then scan. Weve successfully done this in the past. Last week my grandkids were able to scan and watch local channels.

Today, after menu we can no longer scroll to lock or channel. Theyre displayed on the menu but using the remote and the manual buttons on the TV only scrolls thru picture, sound, time and setup, then bypasses lock and channels.

Notice that lock and channel are greyed out. Is there a configuration clue that Im missing? Could they have changed something while I wasnt looking?
