I opened the TV, but no "switch" on the PCB to do a "reset to factory". ... You almost certainly need the remote, and also the service manual that .... and I was able to get into the menu by remote and to disable the Child lock.
Here is the link for the manual;
page 15 towards the bottom - unfortunately you can only remove the child lock with the remote.
If you look on the remote (possibly inside the battery compartment) it should have a model number - sorry i had no luck yet finding it out online - let us know that, and we can try and source a new remote for you.
Try searching for this remote;
DYNATRON MR160 MIRACLE REMOTE CONTROL
It is designed to control all hitachi tvs from 1988, including all the hitachi brand specific functions and seems readily available, no link because you will find lots, maybe somewhere close to you.
Sorry if bad news; hope it helps :)
