Thank you for using Justanswer.

Microwave Ovens (and combo hoods) can lose screen from a voltage outage or if you experience a brown out.

First, try and disconnect the microwave from the wall outlet in the cabinet above it. Then, after a minute reconnect it. If this resolves your problem you're all set for now. It will likely happen again. So, maybe a good quality surge protector could help.

IF it does not resolve your issue, you will have to take it apart to test a couple of things before deciding a replacement part. Have you done something like this before? Do you have a basic volt meter?

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
