    Actually.....we found a solution and was shocked. Pioneer said there was not a way to do it without one of those expensive removtes that cost like 150.00. Well, we found a Jensen Universal removte that was here at the house that we used on a differenty TV. We went online and researched it and lo and behold, it operates my Pioneer Big Screen. Thanks for you help though, but after trial and error, we've got a 10.00 universal remote that is working great!

You will need to get an original replacement remote or the original to access the menu. An original replacement remote for this TV set is not cheap! You can see what you need here
Good Luck

How to adjust brightness

You don't say anything about the brand, but most have a menu or setup button on the remote (and TV) which give an on-screen display of functions available. You should see one for picture adjustments. Perhaps the projection bulb is getting old and dim. This is another possibility.
