Lock after restart

When I restarted my device XZ3, I failed entering passcode. And then, inputting the word "SONY" was required to unlock the device, however, I was unable to enter the word because only numeric keyborad was available. Therefore, I repaired my device with Xperia companion.
For the next time when I failed entering passcode after restarting device, I would like to know how to use word keyboard.Screenshot_20181019-150934.png

Re: Lock after restart

What happens if you hold the keys down?

Re: Lock after restart

Are you tapping on the line below the word Sony?

Can you screenshot the text entry you get come up.

Re: Lock after restart

Yes, I tapped.

When I try to take the screenshot, the keyboard is hidden so I can not take it.
