How do I get the keyboard to come up so I can rename it. I'm not being given that option

I don't have my Fire Stick plugged into my Samsung at this time.  But as I recall if you select (cursor) in box that shows what you type, the keyboard will pop up. 

 

I just tried it on my Chromecast stix, and it works the way I mentioned above.

Ok, this is for EVERYONE having issues with their Samsung HDTV's and ANY Amazon Fire TV device.  I had purchased the Amazon Fire TV Cube and hooked it up to my Samsung 49" UHD 8000 series Smart ( Tizen ) TV. It worked great for a month.

Then I unplugged it for several weeks as I was testing some other Android boxes.  When I tried to re-connect the Cube, I would only see the Fire Tv logo, then nothing Black Screen.  I connected it to a smaller generic brand TV, it works fine.

I tried different quality HDMI Cables and splitters and everything. Just would not show up on my Samsung TV.  Crazy Right ?  I went thru a dozen forums reading, bla bl bla, nothing worked.

Well being an Electronics Tech I finally deduced, the TV had to forget about this device and re-recognize it as it did the very first time.

So I UNPLUGGED my TV, and did a low level degauss.  You hold a metal object across the 2 prongs of your TV's power wire and it drains the CMOS memory to an extent.  No harm can be done as it is not plugged in... this is just a basic cache memory dump.  After holding that butter knife across the prongs for 20 seconds, I plugged the TV back in and turned on my Fire Cube and it works perfectly.

Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!

Once you type rename the unknown Devi’s to Amazon Fire Stick, unplug the power for your tv. Once you plug it back in, your tv will recognize you fire stick and your tv remote will work for the fire stick.

I can not seem to make my existing fire stick read on my new Samsung smart Tv. This fire stick has worked perfectly on a small ‘not smart” tv previously. I keep getting an error message that I need to plug into the HDMI port, but I have already done that!  Sorry,I am very technically challenged.

Have you tried to power cycle your TV?  As in unplugging it for a couple minutes and trying again to get it to recognize your Fire Stix?  Make sure you have your Fire Stix plugged into power also (not the USB port of the TV).
