Hello. the odds are in the 98% range that an electrical surge (spike) occurred as a result of the power failure and has damaged the units electronics control module and display.

Tell me how old the air conditioner is, and if know the size of it tell, or tell me what you paid for it so that I an advise you on the best course of action regarding repairs.
