Problems with E-M5ii

Hello all,

It's been a while since I've stopped by here. Haven't done much serious photography for a while, so my E-M5ii has mainly become an outdoor adventure camera, sailing, kayaking and hiking mainly. I have a cheap GoPro knockoff, but just keep reaching for the Oly because it feels right, but it's paid the price with regular salt water exposure that has caused several buttons to fail - the DOF preview and Rec buttons mainly. I have an insurance rider which covers damage, so I am considering putting in a claim, but wanted to check if there is something I am missing. With the Rec button not working, I thought I could switch to using the shutter button in Movie mode, but enabling this option doesn't work, although the shutter button works fine. Also, I can't find any mode where the LCD touch screen works at all anymore.

I am wondering if I have somehow messed up the settings to cause this, or if it is just fall out from water/salt damage. Maybe I will try a settings reset, but I'm afraid it will take ages to get it back the way it was.
