So you should just be able to press and hold the control lock button for 5 seconds to remove the control like like you previously tried. If that isn't working and flipping the power off for a minute didn't reset the electronics, your touch control panel would need to be ordered and replaced. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace for your model.
