Roku problem, Need HELP please

So my Roku is on a dynex tv unsure the size. Anyways the Home Screen of Roku works perfect but if I load a app let’s say YouTube or Spotify YouTube loads up with a screen of different colored vertical lines and you can’t see the picture at all. Sometimes it seems to have sound. On Spotify it loads a black screen. I went through multiple troubleshooting but no luck! Unplugged everything let it sit about a hr and retried didn’t work. Restarted device didn’t work. Read online try changing it from automatic 1080p to manual 1080p and it’d load but with a really tiny screen. I tried 720p didn’t work at all. I’ve deleted apps and reinstalled but didn’t work. I’m thinking of just factory resetting to see if that works. Any tips, ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated before I buy a brand new one! THANKS
