Not sure, but you may need a more sophisticated scanner that will also report special codes that for instance the transmission module communicates to the powertrain control module (PCM- the main computer on the vehicle, but nowadays there are also computers on several other systems, like the transmission and the chassis electrical system, and the ABS system. They all communicate with the PCM. I thought all codes were available from the PCM, but maybe not in your case.
Anyway, if you have a friend with a more high-end scanner, try scanning it again. Or try at Autozone, and see what their free scan says.
year vehicle manufactured? if 1996 & later, OBDII scanner to be plugged into a port (typically, should be near the steering column, under the dash).
older models may have OBDI (no standard location of port) scanner specific to the make of the vehicle. search the web, on how to read manually (or without scanner) the code by counting the number of blinks of the MIL (malfunction Indicator light) (aka check engine, or service engine soon).
There are products out there, available to consumers, such as the maxiscan MS309 OBDII/EOBD unit. It plugs into your automobile computer and reads, and can reset false problems. You must make sure that the unit you buy covers the type of auto you own. The connection point in my Ford is in the fuse box.
maybe try to change the input source. plug in cable or a dvd player and see if anything else works or generates output or at least a signal? Go to menu and see if you can configure it any differently? hit me up if that doesnt help
