This would be a controller issue, and sadly, on the 2070-series ovens, GE does not make separate parts available.
So you would have to replace the "control panel subassembly".
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
If you have any trouble getting the grille off once the screws are removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.
On some models there are L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent.
Disconnect the keypad strip as shown in the photo below, remove your smart board, then insert it into the new subassembly.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Most people, and GE will tell you these are not repairable and you must replace the whole unit for $300 - 500. I can fix them. If you are interested, let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org I can only fix the touchpad not working and it must not be physically damaged. You must be able to take out the control panel and send it to me. It is easy (3 screws and electrical connectors).

On the JVM2070- and PVM2070-series microwaves, GE does not make service information or separate parts available.
So when you have an error with the controller that does not involve the smart board (and this error does not) then you have to order the control panel subassembly, which on your model (PVM2070SM1SS) is part number WB07X11143 and you can get it from the Pros here for $477.83 (subject to change).
It's very expensive but it's actually simple to replace that part yourself.
You would remove the control panel assembly as shown in our video here, then remove your smart board and attach it to the new control panel subassembly.
Some connectors on the relays have a lock:
If it's under warranty or GE Customer Service would give you a break on the the part cost, that would be a big plus for you.
