The screen resolution is determined by the source and not the television.  The source (e.g. a PlayStation 3) will query the television to determine which modes it is capable of and then (normally) use the highest available.
I've not had any problems with DVD players, computers, games consoles not managing to send 1080p so it might be worth checking the settings of the source device to see if there's anything you can change there.
Failing that I'd try and find a friend and borrow something from them that they know is working at 1080p without any problems - if the television still won't go to 1080p then its probably a fault in the HDMI cable or something odd with the television.

Green vertical lines across the screen.

Green lines on LCD screens generally means physical damage. Did you drop it or bump it by chance? Physical could also include the cable that you are using. Try using a different cable, or make sure it is connected all the way.

I have a brand new 1day old 60inch sharp aquos led tv since we hooked it up it has had a faint greenish line going vertically right in the middle of the screen. nothing makes it go away. do you know what...

This greenish line is due to physical screen damage. This is not repairable and not your fault.

If you didn't drop this tv, then the TV was damaged in the box.

Return your TV to the store you bought it as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more chance they'll tell you that you damaged the TV and that they're not responsible for customer's physical damage.

Turned on set....screen all black except a dark blue rectangle in center which reads:Failed to receive broadcast [E202]

That message is presented when a selected digital channel is too weak to decode. Let us hope that something was accidentally changed:

Is the channel legitimate?
Is the antenna/cable still connected (to the Digital input)?
Go into menu - setup - channel setup. Is the selection of either cable or air channels correct for your situation?
Use menu - setup - Antenna Setup-DIGITAL to examine the signal strength. Is there nothing at all, or is it just a question of strength?

Odds favor a change in channel setup that you would not have made intentionally, or a simple physical problem (input cable, etc.). Start from scratch, and check the settings and connections you originally made. Hopefully it will be simple and cheap!
