A couple things to check:

1.) Be sure that any ad-blocker you may be running is disabled. We do not run ads on our site but the blockers can prevent some required scripts from being properly loaded.

2.) Be sure that you first click in the black screen before pressing keys to wake the display. The console only detects keypresses after it has been given focus in the browser by being clicked.
