Have you spilled anything on the keyboard? Raise the unit up on its back and see if there are any little pieces of round plastic bits missing from the keyboard. If so, then the keysheet insidr is not makong contact and will need to be repaired. That is a $75 to 100 dollar repair.

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.

You may have some linkage that came disconnected or an obstruction under the spacebar.
Using the space bar move the carrier (print head) all the way to the right, press and hold tab clear key and hit the return key.

Try this, because you may have tabs set and it is not allowing you to move the carriage with the spacebar.
If this does not help, let me know. Thanks.

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.

(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.

Space bar reassembly


you can replace from any keyboard that is no more working. just remove the metal bar and replace it with yours. Except you want to buy another keyboard.

You can also try fixing it later, you might get a solution on your own, maybe you are exhausted or worn out. Just relax your brain and by the time you go back to it, You might just get it right this time around.

Wish you the best of luck.

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

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!
