My Fire stick will turn on the TV but I can’t go past that. This is less that 7 months old and in our vacation house. This is the first time it has not worked properly when turned on.

Once loaded fire stick worked fine, suddenly on loading, all the apps/picture sizes are miniscule, impossible to watch.
Have done the reset and calibrate thing in settings, changes nothing.
Would like to try restoring to factory settings, but have only TV remote to control with, a bit worried I’ll be locked out!?
Anyone advise?
