  • Switching to another keyboard and then back might work. If you see the keyboard in your running apps/services, stopping it and then performing an action that would bring it up might also work. – Matthew Read Sep 2 '15 at 15:52
  • Thans for the suggestion. Unfortunatelu it's not working. it's a built in PHYSCIAL KEYBOARD. – totti Sep 2 '15 at 16:11

    Oh, I see. You might need to unload and reload a driver / kernel module but it's hard to say. Can you add the details of your device and software version to the question? – Matthew Read Sep 2 '15 at 17:56
  • Updated. Can we use modprobe or services command as in linux. – totti Sep 3 '15 at 14:45
  • @totti Android is based on linux and there are terminal apps available. I don't know those commands but it might work. Best way to find out is to try! :) – miva2 Nov 9 '15 at 17:36
