The Samsung LA19R71B is a 19" LCD TV.
I was using it with the RF output of my Commodore C64C.
Channel search works but no channels are detected.

Does the C64 have a RF modulated output or just a composite video signal?

You may need a modulator.

Not sure what your problem is there, hopefully you plugged the
RF output into the RF input on the TV even though it connects
from an RCA socket on the C64, if you plugged it into a
Composite (yellow) input on the TV then that's your problem.

Of course you'd have to make sure it's scanning for analogue
channels, not digital.

Picture quality and compatibility is likely to be better
if you buy (or already have? They were common, also easy to
make) one of the C64 AV cables off Ebay which will plug into
an AV port on the TV. Ideally an old CRT TV will work and
look better than an LCD, but it will probably work.

I have the proper cable with RCA one end and old style antenna
plug the other and it was working. I don't have an AV cable and
I'm reluctant to spend any more money on the C64.
I foolishly spent $30 buying a balance board for my WII and I
can't give the WII away.

Presumably the TV still picks up stations via the RF input.
Perhaps it's something like the way the RF cable is bent when
you plug it in to that particular TV which has begun causing
it to break the circuit. Similarly the connectors on the TV
and C64 could be affected by pressure applied in that
particular way.

Just have to wait thirty years like the C64 and you might get
your money back. :)
