The sound on my new tv sometimes sounds "tinny". Also, it only goes up to 60, which isn't all that loud.
I was watching a movie called "Flawless" the other night and could barely hear the actors - it all sounded so muffled.
I tried setting the "bass" and "treble" adjustments on the audio menu, but it didn't sound any different. Do you have any other suggestions other than attaching separate speakers? is there another (deeper) menu I could go to to adjust the audio?

You could open up the TV and look for signs of burnt components then try to replace the components or try to find a replacement for the entire affected board on ebay or something. If you can find out what the problem is maybe the service person will lower there price. $600 does seem very steap, it should be something closer to $60 an hour with maybe the first $60 as an estimate.
That popping noise means the silicon grease underneath the audio ic has melted and is shorting the audio. This is unfortunately a design flaw by sharp. To fix the problem, you'd have to disassemble the entire TV and clean off the melted residue off of the AV Board and replace it with a new Sharp Heat Insulation Pad. Its a pretty difficult job, I suggest calling your local Sharp authorized service center to fix that for you.
When I first bought my Sharp Aquos 42 inch TV...I started having sound problems...turned the volume way up to 60 maximum and could hardly hear it.
Then after the TV was on for 4 or 5 hours, there would be crackling chirping popping noise. It seems after the TV heats up for awhile...there is MAJOR sound problems.
So I was advised to buy a Sony surround system and connect it to my TV...deactivate the TV volume and use ONLY the surround sound. I did that...but the surround audio cables are connected to the back of the TV and I get the exact SAME problem with chirping and crackling sounds after the TV heats up.
SHARP IS NOT BEING HONEST WITH CUSTOMERS.
There should definitely be a RECALL on the sound board.
Replacing it does nothing....the overheating of the TV just damages the new sound board and the TV has to be repaired again and again.
Very loud it never gonna be. It's a tv with very small speakers, but I have a lot of customers who complain about that and I checked first the signal source. Sometimes the sattelite receiver or cable box give a sound not so good. The best way to check it is to plug something (an antenna or just a 2 inch wire) in the coaxial plug to see if on the tuner is the same sound. I bet is gonna be stronger.
