From your description it sounds like you TV is experiencing a shut down and re-set condition. This is usually caused by some type of voltage irregularity in the power supply section of the TV. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix and will require a trip to the shop. Get an estimate before approving repair. In the new world of disposable electronics the cost of repair may exceed the value of the set.
I checked out the manual for a similar model tv from polaroid...there's only one input for the coax cable from your antenna, so if the antenna's cable is connected to this input, this couldn't be the problem. What I do have trouble with on my own tv is that my indoor antenna location can make huge differences in recognizing all available digital signals. I could even have the antenna facing a different direction, and get different results. There are a few sites you can google for to find your distance from the broadcast towers, too. This might help to determine if you need a stronger antenna.
It's a painfully long procedure to try different angles and positions for your antenna each time you run a channel scan, but this might be the only thing that would prevent you from picking up the digitals. I try the highest spot possible, and the one closest to the outdoors. Good luck, I hope you can pick them up soon!
(Any antenna works...the industry tries to pass off "digital/hdtv specific antennas" to make a buck. I've used a cheapy rabbit-ears antenna and was able to bring in digital channels, as long as your tv or converter box is converting the signal.)
Your TV will need a HD converter because it doesn't have a digital tuner but only if you are receiving over the air signals. If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, then you do not need the converter HD box. Click here for more info on the TV specs.
I recently found a remote that does work for this TV. Its a DirecTV model RC64. The codes listed in the book do not work. So you must do a channel search. It's not that far down the list so it doesn't take that much time. I hope this helped those concerned.
Check the connection of the ground. Bad connection of ground usually create this problem. Especially the ground connection between the crt board and the wire who surround the picture tube. Let me know what you will get after this.
