Sometimes when I am typing the keyboard suddenly vanishes and the blinking line at the place where I was typing also disappears. Even after persistent tapping it doesn't respond (right when I was typing this very sentence it happened). It doesn't matter what keyboard I use, be it Swiftkey or Stock Android keyboard.

Can someone please help me. I really want to see my phone the way it was before.

  • See if clearing the cache and data (you would lose your dictionary so back it up to cloud using the keyboard settings) helps

  • @beeshyams I have cleared cache. But clear data for what? Swiftkey? Android Stock? Jul 3, 2017 at 16:03
  • For both . This may clear the problem - one of those things that usually helps

  • Nope, this doesn't work @beeshyams. Thanks for the help you provided so far, but can you help me out a bit more? Jul 3, 2017 at 16:16

    @beeshyams Thanks anyway. I decided to factory reset my phone to get rid of a lot of problems. Thank you so much for your help nontheless. Jul 4, 2017 at 6:18

When mine does this I am able to double-tap on the input field and the keyboard re-opens. (To clarify: regular tapping does nothing for me...I could tap it all day long and it just stays closed. It's the act of doing a solid, clean double-tap which seems to instantly being it back.)

I have no idea why this happens, but maybe this will help you too.
