Hi, I created this blog as a class project (formative cycle of international trade) on our hobbies.
To enter my first blog to solve some problems we might encounter on our smartphone.
Today we will see how to solve the error message "Unfortunately the LG keyboard has stopped".
This happened to me a few days ago with a mini LG g2.
This error message comes when we start any use of the keyboard, to fix first thing we have to do is:
We enter the settings menu enter:
Once in settings let the option of applications
Once inside applications, we move in the menu on the far right where it says "all" now seek keyboard (keyboard I have google, because I'm doing this with a virtual machine, but the same steps) click in keyboard:
Click on "clear data" and "clear cache" to reset the keyboard. care to restore some ajuntes, because you can delete the application from the keyboard. (Do it under your responsibility), if we happen that just have to be enabled for updates on google play store to see if this activated we have to go play store -> settings -> general -> Automatic Updates enabled.

Awesome! Struggled for hours before finding this!. Just doing the first "clear data" did the trick.

It work immediately. Thank you!! Texting is my preferred means of communicating on my cell. I'm in my late sixties and these machines can drive me crazy, but that was an easy fix. You're great.
commented Dec 28, 2016 by anonymous
how do you do this from the lock screen? My keyboard doesn't come up and I have tired everything (removing battery, SIM card etc.) and even tried to factory reset my phone ( it did not work). I have quite a few things that I have not backed up (contacts) and really need to fix the problem soon.
commented Jan 11 by anonymous
I have an LGMS500. Pretty old but serves the purpose. Installed SD card, a must have. I had this problem often enough.
I have spent the last year clearing the cache, downloading cleaners, etc., removing the battery... All temporary fixes to the problem. I must say you are pretty brilliant. It worked immediately! Thank you!
commented Jan 21 by anon
This worked great! Thanks!
commented May 15 by anonymous
Bravo! The instructions worked! Thank you very much!
commented Jul 26 by Mick
And what do one do, if there are only the buttons Force Stop and Deactivate?? Force Stop button doesn't respond btw.

I am a novice in technical situations. Yesterday, when I attempted to send a text message what popped up on the screen was a message: Unfortunately, the keyboard has stopped with an ok button at the bottom. Well, let me tell you here and now, this wasn't ok with me. In fact, I had hoped for a wtf button to click on. I contacted my boss last evening and he directed me to this site on my computer. I followed the instructions as are written above and now I am able to access the keyboard.

Thank you so much for guiding me into the solution.

You are Rockstars in my eyes!

Have a Blessed day,
