There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

This is the autofocus circuit or known as the convergence circuit. The circuit could be out of adjustment, or simply failed completely. You can check that any autofocus is not working for the menu images, or check that the autofocus is off, and turn it back on. Otherwise you need to change this circuit or try adjusting the screws to see that you can bring it back to focus yourself.

There might be a little button but unless you have the factory remote get a Harmony 650 universal remote. It can handle everything the factory remote can do.

It depends on the TV but for Hitachi I think it is on the DMD board. To keep the settings when unplugged.
