Dots, white lines, black lines showing on new Sharp LCD HDTV

I'm getting lots of interference with my new 42 inch HDTV. It's the latest Sharp has for sale. I don't know what could be wrong. The lines appear when there is white on the screen. When the picture shows dark images the lines go away. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a feeling I'm going to have to return this 70+ pound bad boy.

MR HOG HOW ARE YOU FEEDING YOUR T.V. NEED MORE INFO

In reply to: Dots, white lines, black lines showing on new Sharp LCD HDTV

For a true clean hi-def picture you must use a hi-def cable or satellite system hooked up with either componit vidio cables or a h.d.m.i. cable PERIOD. or if the t.v. has an over the air hi-def tuner you could install a good outside antenna and go to the t.v. menue and do a digital scan that will give you the local stations in hi-def WARNING You just bought a t.v. that wi;ll give you a movie theater quality picture if its hooked up correctly. You should bone up a little.If you understand the basics you can have a bewautiful home theater system otherwise with no knowledge your just hedding for problems THESE T.VS ARE NOT TOASTERS STEWEEEE
