This is technical unit an they can be pretty touchy with power outages sometimes. It may be in a display mode. If you havent already try unplugging the unit for a minute or two and plug it back in. This doesnt reset its programming try holding Energy Saver Key + Lighting Key for 8 seconds and let the unit run thru a self diagnstic test and hopefully it will reset. If neither works its going to have the main board replaced.

Testimonial: "It worked! Thank you so much!"
SOURCE: lcd screen flashing 88 8Y
I have a samsung french door that was also displaying 88 8Y and found out that it's an error code for the ice maker, I removed the wire cover, disconnected the ice dispencer connector, and then removed the ice dispencer, made sure nothing was stuck inside, plugged in the connector, pushed the reset button, and then put everything back. Unplugged the unit for about 20 min, and when I plugged it back in everything worked. I can't take the credit for this, a thread at applianceguru.com/forum1/8630.html helped me out on this one.

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........
In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.
Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.
Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)
Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.
