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

Why doesn't anyone answer my question.. Have a Xerox 620C Memory writer. space bar doesn't leave a space between words

Most people only answer questions under 2 circumstances:
1) They have to see the question. Since there are a LOT of questions (Like thousands every day) we volunteer FIXYA helpers only see a few of them. Then,
2) We have to think that we either know the answer, or might be able to help you find the answer.
Then we reply.
My guess or suggestion regarding your problem, and I assure you that I don't know the answer.......
- Possible defect with your space bar
Would it be possible to have it checked by a technician?
Hope this helps.

When I hit the spacebar it jumps 2 spaces

Look closely at the space bar. try to lift it on the right side and on the left. The bar may have popped out of place. Specifically a metal rod that holds the space bar in place. Or the space bar is not resetting fast enough, ( soda, honey, something sticky) causing the bar to reset slowly.

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.

Have an old Brother Deluxe 650TR portable that hasn't been used for a long time. The carriage will move but will not stay at the right margin after being returned. Any suggestions?

Does the carriage just move back and forth on its own? Space bar work? The escapement may be sticky from lack of use. You may be able to see it from the upper rear or the bottom. It will move when you hit space bar or keys. Try working WD40 into it, it'll take a bit of use to free.

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

If the bar works when you hit right in the middle try reinstalling the bar the metal rod must go under the tabs on the keyboard, if it won't at all you probably need a keyboard.
