"D5000 video problem"
I have a used 5000 that seems to function normally except for video. As the instructions say, I put it in Live View, hit focus and then press the OK button. Nada. I've tried everything I can think of but the little REC icon has a line crossed through it. I haven't found anything on the Web that addresses this. Am I missing something?

Are you even sure that the 5000 Model even has video. I had a D3000 and even though it claimed having video technically I was stop-action movie which is different.
On my D3200 To do video here are the steps:
push button for live view push push down the button with the little red dot. then push down shutter button and hold down until you finish movie then release shutter Press button with red dot again push LV button to turn off Live view.
You want to use live view as little as possible It eats batteries like there is no tomorrow. On my camera if you leave Live view own ten minute it will reduce the battery charge almost by half
