It looks like from the "Home" Screem press "Information Desk" then "Useful Information" then "Child Lock" then "Set The Lock"

I have a hunch the microwave panel is going into Child lock mode and preventing you from operating the clear/off function. Not sure which is the middle switch that you replaced. I would suggest you give the panel a good wipe with a clean damp cloth to remove all grime etc. Before selecting the start/pause button press the Clear/off button for 3 secs and see if the L (lock) shows up on the display. Next press again for 3 secs to see if L goes away.
This way you have confirmed the panel is not in lock mode before you start next operation. Provide your observations in the comments section so that I can assess what the next step should be.
Possible that the lock switch had broken or that the alignment of the lock is offset. You can remove the front panel by removing the screws on the sides and slide out the panel to get a view of the lock which wil confirm the case. If so the lock must be replaced or if broken and the piece is found within , it can be stuck together using instant glue.
Check the power supply. Make sure the microwave is firmly plugged into a working electrical outlet and that your wall outlet is active if your home uses outlets controlled by a wall switch. Check your home's fuses or circuit breakers to ensure they have not been tripped. Without power the microwave will not respond to any input.
Make sure the parental lock is inactive. Some ovens, like the one shown in the image above, feature a keypad lock to prevent children playing with the controls. Most keypad locks can be cancelled by holding down a button or combination of buttons for a few seconds.
Make sure the door is firmly closed. Some microwave ovens will not allow any control panel input if the door is open.
Remove the microwave from the power, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. This will reset the microwave oven if there is a temporary problem with the software.
Press the "Stop/Cancel" button several times to cancel the current operation and return the microwave to standby mode. Re-enter your cooking instructions using the keypad as usual.
