Press hold. Go to the old frequencies. Press L/O twice. First press is a Temporary Lock Out and the second press is a permanent lock out. Then press hold again and enter the new freq and press "E yes" button to enter. To verify it is in your scanner, press HOLD/RESUME button, and you should see the new freq you just entered. Repeat all the above steps above for each new frequency.

You need to do a Full Factory Reset tuning rather than just a rescan.

Rescan simply looks at the place holders where the old channels were stored and refreshes them. A Factory Reset (A.K.A. Shipping Condition) wipes the channel memories and starts again fresh.

If that doesn't solve it then it could be a problem of too much signal on certain strong channel groups (BBC and ITV). Your aerial is more sensitive at some frequencies, so there's more signal power higher up the frequency range. If ITV has been moved to where the aerial is stronger then it could be oversaturating the tuner.

A simple and inexpensive diagnosis tool is a variable attenuator. The MA1620 on this page is perfect for that job:
Splitters amplified splitters and attenuators

It will give you a way to reduce the signal level at one TV without affecting the other TVs in the house.

Turn off the scanner.
While holding down 2, 9, and Hold, turn on the

The above is from the "Resetting the Scanner" section on page 53 of the manual.
