Samsung RM255LASH - flashing error code 98 a8 after power glitch

I have tried resetting it after calling support @ samsung they say its in "DEMO" mode. I need to press arctic select and freezer button together for 8 seconds. BUt nothing happens.
Then they wanted me to reset the unit by plugging and unpluugging unit after 9 mins. THat doesnt work too.

Also the fridge is making too much ice and it is puddled at the bottom and frozen over.

    The unit flashes error code 98 A8 but will not reset by either unplugging and re-plugging the unit or pressing the arctic select and freezer buttons together. A technician has recommended replacing the cpu.

It turns out that it isn't flashing 98 and 88, but rather it makes the 98 because the one segment is blinking. This is segment 25. You can find info on what this and other blinking segments mean on page 25 of this document:
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/9bd8982bbb58d2b18525729c0057f34e/$FILE/Samsung_2Door_2Drawer_SXS.pdf
This is a service page for a whirlpool model, but it's exactly the same.

Good luck

How to reset it out of demo mode


If your not getting any response out of your control pane you will have to do the following
The refrigerator may be in Demo mode which disables the compressor to save electricity when the refrigerator is on the showroom floor. To cancel Demo mode, press Freezer and Arctic Select Zone buttons for 8 seconds. You will hear a chime.

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.
