Fridge don't work after power outtage - RF28R7201SG/AA

There was a power outage. When the power came back. The fridge appears to be not working.

The lights don't work, non of the buttons work, water/ice dispenser doesn't work. 

I've checked the outlet, it has 124v AC.

The troubleshooting portion of the manual said it might be in energy-saving mode and I need to deactivate it. But nowhere in the manual did it say how to deactivate energy-saving mode. I did find something about the sabbath mode and it sounds similar. To deactivate press the "Door alarm" and "Water/ICE" buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. I did that and there was no response.
