Amazon deliver only expensive TVs

I just now tried to buy a really nice small HDTV from Amazon CA for 66$, but it wouldn't deliver to Kelowna, BC. I first thought they don't have a carrier for such items in this area, but the much more expensive (and bigger) TV I added to my order as a test would be delivered without any problems.

Does anyone know anything about this? I'm buying from Amazon for years now and have never had anything like this happen. I tried to find out more directly from Amazon, but wasn't able to find a customer service link for this type of issues. Here is the screen grab:

Try using a Canada Post Flexdelivery address for that item.

It has to do with having a box number in your address usually. If you must keep it in there, mask it by changing it to B.ox 123 for example and try again.

No box number in the address.
And they were happy to deliver the other (more expensive|) TV to the same address.

I tried that first. Amazon gives you the option to "Search for a Pickup Point location near you" which is usually the nearest PO.
Didn't work either.

This is the item that I was trying to buy (I wonder if anyone else will have the same problem)

same here is Laval won't ship, had in my cart for weeks as the price fell, this usually happen when data is entered incorrectly by amazon by its shipping dept. Call CS and they sent a report, once the fix the error they price usually jump right back up.

it has has happened to me many times, every time Amazon refused to honor the lower price

Yeah, makes sense. |Must be some error that does not have anything to do with the shipping address.
I noticed that that the note "Only 7 left in stock." didn't change from yesterday. If they were selling any at that price they would have been gone by now.

I've seen this before on Amazon, I just assume that there's something wrong with the listing. It wont let me ship it either
