All of those codes you're getting are indicative of a circuit board problem unfortunately. The 8888 means no communication with the topside controller, which would also be why nothing was displaying on it. As long as it keeps coming on and at least running, it won't freeze up, if the heater is coming on then that will help also. Whoever you bought it from is going to have to most likely replace the control pack for you. In the meantime, depending on the brand of spa, if you have enough room inside the spa cabinet down below, I always put a small electric ceramic heater down in the cabinet, close the cabinet back up and leave it run like that. It will keep everything warm inside and keep it from freezing. You may have to remove another one of the spa sides other than right where the control panel is to locate enough room to place a heater inside.
No unfortunately not, when it's a circuit board, all you can do is replace it. Have a great night.
