Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U LCD-52 wdscrn tht won't scan in digital...

I have a Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U LCD -52 inch TV. I am an idiot in this field having had no experience ... but, I will attempt to explain...
A neighbor of mine just bought a Vizio 32 inch LCD for 400 dollars and he is picking up digital broadcasts (we have identical Basic Cable Bundles!!) --- while mine is receiving those channels in Analog in the same Ch. 2 - Ch. 79 range. I ventured into the *upper channels* and found that my Sharp was receiving only 3 digital broadcasts (which are
DUPLICATIONS OF THREE OF MY ANALOG CHANNELS) in the Ch. 100.2 - Ch. 100.12 range. There were many many channels that showed an on screen text that said one of two things (1. "Failed to receive broadcast E202" or 2. "No Broadcast E203"). What is this? Will it improve when they convert to complete digital broadcast... or will I lose ALL reception?? Is there any FIX that I can buy, or do? If anyone would please, please, reply... do so in "simple English". You know... the kind that smart girls with no expertise in a particular area can readily understand (and be quite impressed with :) . Thank you soo much!!!

Seeing that you have a superior brand and not getting channels is a bummer. It may have to do with the setting, make sure you're set to cable rather antenna and then do a rescan. Btw, often times channels from an over the antenna is much clearer than from cable because cable tv has to compress the signal. If you're high in the air like the top floor of a building a cheap $10 will pull in great free digital channels. It helps to experiment and read the troubleshooting guide in your manual.
