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.
