Typically in a microwave, you get into programming mode (sounds like the auto/clock button is doing that) set the time and then press START. Give that a try.

SOURCE: Some buttons work, some don't.
The keypad may be bad. Most often they go bad due to moisture from cleaners being sprayed directly on them or steam from the cooktop when the vent fan is not used.
They can also go bad when the unit is stored in an unheated environment where there's a lot of air temperature change (hot during the day, cold at night, etc.)
It may also be some residue on the connections where the keypad plugs into the control board. Unplugging then replugging the keypad can sometimes clean them.
In other cases, a new keypad is needed.

Normally you would press Clock, enter the desired numbers, then hit Clock or Start. Try it with door open and with door closed.

I would suspect it either needs a hard reset (unplugging it for a few minutes, then trying again) or the membrane keypad is failing.
Instead of JMV1540BMC01, it would probably be one of these models:

I was pressing one too many buttons.
Press Clock, then Stop, press in the 24 hour time digits, then press Clock again.
