I can't help you with the failure to record but the green light is auto focus confirmation.

Re: Movie Button not working

Update - Had to pay as there was a dent on the camera which I think i did drop and caused the mechanics to fail. Olympus were excellent throughout and my camera is now back all working, took about 14 days in total.
