I am having the same problem with my JVC HD-70A478. I put in a new bulb but the picture brightness is about the same. Its so dim you can't watch it during the day.

I got a service manual off the web for the 70G887 here http://elektrotanya.com/jvc_ra2_chassis_hd70g887_projection.pdf/download.html, mine set is the HD-70A478 as stated above, apparently they are very similar, they have the same user manual, which I got here http://www.manualslib.com/manual/83253/Jvc-Hd-70a478.html. The service manual shows how to run the service diagnostic, but i can't run that without the original remote, so I ordered an original remote for it.

Any other solutions out there?
