You have a key board problem. It may just need disassembly and cleaning but more likely it needs a new contact velum.

SOURCE: I have a smith corona sd680 work processor

This problem is usually caused by an old ribbon theey do dry out when left in tthe typewriter a long time, also if the paper is really hard or has a slick surface the ink from the ribbon will not stick to the paper.
