I'm started my LG Optimus One in System Recovery Mode. Vol Up/Vol Down buttons works - moving up/down through the menu. But i can't start menu item, for example 'reboot system now', or 'apply'.

What type of System Recovery do you have? On my P500 everything is fine.

In AmonRA Recovery there are such bindings:

  • VolUp/VolDown - moving through menus

  • Back - previous menu level, cancel action

  • Menu - select menu item, approve action

Also I've noted that from some time back button doesn't work every time as I press it. I think it is hardware problem. Maybe I need to disassemble phone and make it maintenance.

Normally you click the Power button to select items. That's how my Galaxy S works, anyways.

Edit: According to this, try using the Send Call button. And End Call for cancel. Or according to this, use the Camera button. I guess it depends on what recovery you have installed. Try selecting something that won't do any harm -- a further menu, for example. Not "factory reset" :P

LG P500 has Menu, Home, Back, Search, Vol Up, Vol Down, Power buttons. I'm tried all of them :( – aetaur Jul 14 '11 at 16:12

if you're use the same custom recovery, according to this, on P500 to select item you press Menu button.
