Sounds like the keyboard is going bad and will have to be replaced.
you will need to take this to a repairman to verify. you are prabably looking at around $160

My lexmark typewriter space bar will not work and the phrase light is stuck on

The phrase light is also the single space. If only the space bar doesn't workyou may have a bad keyboard or something under the space bar that is in the way.

Space bar is not working, all other keys are working fine.

if the keyboard is too old and if you have used it a lot, then ou have to replace the keyboard. The space bar alone had gone.

(qwaszx) (,) and, (space bar) not work. how can i

The fact that it's the first two letter keys on each row; and SPACE and COMMA; leads me to suspect a circuit problem...either caused by spilled liquid or an impact.

You can try taking the keyboard apart to find out what's wrong, but I suspect that you will end up spending $20 for a new keyboard.

Space bar does not work

Hello, Thomas.

I'd suggest flipping your notebook on its side and then over, lift/pull the space bar slightly with a flat screwdriver or other thin, flat object. First shake, then spray compressed air in the area.

Hopefully, something is lodged (like a paper clip or other small object) and will be removed.

If not, the space bar cannot be replaced, unlike other keys. So, you would need to replace your keyboard.

Hope this helps.

Hope this helps.

You can easily fix your space bar. I fixed mine last month when my daughter pulled it out of the keyboard. I used this video tutorial guide to help install the space bar key back into place. Its really very simple. have a look:

Galaxie twelve power-space bar

There is an adjustment for the power space bar..looks like it is pulling the escapement out too far. Not something for a novice to try..It may also have a bind in it.If so just try to wiggle it to remove the bind.
Hope this helps

Space bar does not work - any suggestions what is wrong?

Assuming this is a WW1000 the space bar will come off with a nlittle prying pressure under the center of the bar. Remove it and check for debris under it.

Space bar sticking on Saitek lighted keyboard

For me, I popped of the space bar, cleaned the junk underneath and fidgeted with the plastic push-button and all was better. Thanks for the suggestion!
