Missing onscreen keyboard

Question

My TV is an  LG 55B6.

A lot of features require text entry on screen - for example using the webbrowser, or renaming inputs (like "HDMI3" to "Xbox").   I had expected an onscreen keyboard to appear when I'm in a mode where text entry is expected - but it doesn't.  Do I need to enable the onscreen keyboard?   Or?

TV is updated to latest firmware.

Best regards,

Michael

Update - and a resolution.

I reset the TV to initial state.  During the new setup I again chose Denmark as location. The result was depressing - still no keyboard.  I then reset the TV again, and this time choose UK as location. Now I got the keyboard. Afterwards I set location back to Denmark, and voila, keyboard is working with Location = Denmark.

Note, that Danish is a support keyboard language, and can be added under General.

    • Question: spacebar on wireless keyboard changes language

      Hello Forum Friends   I have attached a wireless keyboard to my LG Smart Tv, and when I am in for instance in the web browser and typing something in the URL field each time I hit the spacebar it changes my language. I have english and danish as the two keyboard choices. I cannot not chose english, it is greyed out. So I cannot run just danish. However if I unmark the danish in chose keyboards in the settings menu and run just english keyboard, the spacebar still does not work. Anybody have a solution to fix this problem. I have looked in the webbrowser settings and of course the settings menu, to no avail. I have tried another wireless keyboard without luck.   Thankyou for your assistance.

      How to turn on advanced image controls in game mode?
      I have a PC connected to the LG UK6520PSA TV through the hdmi 2.0 cable and incredible as it may seem I have already been able to configure the advanced image mode with all parameters connected, such as dynamic contrast, super resolution, gamma, among others.
      It turns out that for some reason the advanced s control settings become inactive, with the possibility of changing the gamma only. Has anyone ever had this problem?
      I already reseated several times and I could not, it is also important to note that I saw some videos on youtube with these settings activated in game mode. Please help me if you know something, thank you!
      Sorry for the google translator. The images below represent the options connected in hdmi game mode connected to a PC running BF

    • Question: TV turns itself on / What keyboard?

      I have on several occasions turned my TV off,  upon leaving the house and returning to it blaring away on some random channel on YouTube! What would be the cause of this? Is there a way to turn it "OFF" off and not just standby mode? Second question: What type of keyboard could I use for my TV and how does one install it so the TV picks it up? I hate using the on-screen unit!
