GE Profile Fridge - Display reading 88 and 89

My GE Side by Side Bottom Freezer fridge (Model #GFSS6KEXASS and Serial #MR550084) is displaying an "88" in the "Freezer" display window and a blinking "88" in the "Fridge" display window on the internal display. What does this indicate. It seems to still be cooling and freezing properly, but I can not change the temp. The control buttons are not responding. I tried to cycle power but this did not seem to help. Is there a combination of buttons that I can push or hold down to "reset" the display window and the controls? I would rather not pay the $200 for the service appointment if it is an easy fix. As I said, the unit is cooling properly.

My fridge has 80/88 blinking fir the freezer and 88/8y blinking fir the fridge. I've tried the reset method of holding down energy saver and alarm/light for well over 10 seconds and nothing beeped. Any clue as to what is happening?
