You need to change your TV's settings and enhancements. Directly from the store and out of the box, the settings are adjusted for easiest sell in the store. That means that:
Your contrast is cranked to 100. Move this down to 50 to 60.
Your brightness may also be cranked up high. Lower it to a level nearer the middle range but not so dark as to lose detail in the shadows.
Your TV is set on "Dynamic" or "Vivid" mode. Pick "natural" or "normal" or standard.
Your sharpness is at least on, if not cranked up. Turn sharpness down or off, and the same with "Edge Enhancement" and "VSM", all to off.
Lastly, I bet you upgraded size and you are now sitting too close to the TV. Roughly, if you are sitting closer than 130 inches (about 11 foot) you might do some rearranging or save some money and get a smaller TV.

I see your post is about 6 months old, but I was having the same problem. After reading through forums for about an hour, I noticed that resolution was a common factor. I decided to take a shot and crank the res down to the lowest setting (800x600) using the 17" lcd that had already been working with the comp. I then unplugged the lcd and plugged in my tv and voila, I got a display. I then went into display properties and adjusted the res to the highest my tv would take (1280x768). You may just be trying to use a res. that your tv cannot accept. Hope this helps.

Sound like the TV has a defective audio board. Opening up the TV would most likely void the warranty.
It's best to take the TV back and exchange it for a new one. Personally, I wouldn't want to be stuck with a defective TV ( that just came out of the box ) that they are going to repair for you.

Yes, don't buy SHARP, problem solved! SHARP is the worst brand of LCD TV. I had to bring my brand new SHARP TV in for repair within 8 months of buying it brand new, and of course it was no longer under the 90 day labor warranty. Also, every person I know who has a SHARP TV has issues with volume and eventually end up with a black vertical line along the side of the screen within 1 to 2 years. I highly reccomend SONY, PANASONIC, even SAMSUNG, LG or VIZIO. Heck, I'd go with Toshiba or Phillips before I'd ever buy anything SHARP again I was so annoyed with their customer service.
