E-M1.1 movie won't record. What have I done?

It may be the curse of having the E-M1.1 and .2, which aren't identical to set up — but I was shooting my grandson's soccer game and THOUGHT I was recording a nice breakaway goal.

When I went to review it, there was nothing. The red button switched the look of the info screen — but did not activate recording.

Even in movie mode on the dial, I could not activate movie recording. I switched to my 1.2 and everything was fine — except for the lost moment in time.

Later, I dove into the 1.1's button menu and yes: the red button was set to 'record.'

I just now switched the memory card and it made no difference.

Any ideas? I'm hoping it's going to be a "well duh!" simple fixes.
