Samsung qwerty keyboard keys not working in text entry field

by forum1234 / July 21, 2011 11:19 PM PDT


Just got the Samsung LED UN55D7900 and having a problem with the the keyboard side of the remote. For some reason, the key are not being recognized by any text entry field in the samrt hub. The remote paired just fine and the screen recognizes the letters, however in the web browser no field recognizes what I am typing. Any suggestions? Tried re-pairing but obviously that didnt work.

Same Issue with Qwerty remote
by ChewyKnuckles / August 30, 2011 8:19 AM PDT


Did you get this remote issue resolved? My UN60D8000 looks great (apart from Netflix Soap Opera Effect), but the qwerty side of my remote has never worked properly. Like yours, the remote pairs fine. The other Bluetooth functions work fine (like moving the cursor around with touch pad/button) but text entry does not work. The text comes up in the remotes display window but when I hit Enter, it just launches the alternate number pad text entry on screen.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did you catch that other discussion on SOE?

Some folk figured out you can run up Vudu or something else and turn it off if you start a 2 minute preview then bounce out and shut it off inside 2 minutes. Sorry but I didn't catch the exact steps.

Is it typing only "-1"
If that case update the SMART HUB to latest version or it will update by itself so try to type later!

can you tell me how you upgraded the Samsung Smart Hub ?

I bought a Smart TV last week (PS64D8000) and I have the same problem. All the keys on the Querty keyboard are working except the alphabets/letters.

Please advise

Make sure you connected to the internet and when you run SMARRT HUB and let it sit there by itself for 2~3minutes. it will automatically updates itself. let me know how that works!

I can confirm that the remote issue described in this string was resolved after my UN60D8000 was connected to the internet and Smart Hub automatically updated to version 3.536-6.0.00061.

I don't think it was fixed.

I have the latest 64 Inch D8000 3D TV (purchased 2 weeks ago).

Model: PS64D8000

The latest firmware from samsung is 1015.0 (release date 2nd September)., which is installed on the TV

Has there been any latest firmware upgrades after that?

Until Samsung writes the apps, you must report it to Samsung as well as the App author/owners.
