Maybe your document is the same size as the window ?
To move the image with spacebar/handtool your image must be bigger than the window indicated by scrollbars bottom and/or side.

Could be a keyboard problem.  Press down hard on the spacebar.  I  have had the same problem that you describe and it was my spacebar on an older keyboard.

I thought that might be the problem, but then disconnected the key board and did it straight on the lap top and still nothing. Brand new apple notebook too.

Can I just say to the 'family', that never have I, in all my days, seen so many infuriating glitches in a software release as the new Photoshop. How many of us pay for a service and its updates, only to have to uninstall and revert to previous versions to save our deadlines and our sanity? Released too soon? I think so. Please, Adobe, don't use your loyal customers as guinea-pigs. We're trying to earn a living out here.

Are you using a tablet (Wacom)? Any system extensions? In all cases where this has been a problem it's been a conflict with another app or utility: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-stop-photoshop-mac.html

Howdy Eric,

What Jeff said ^^^.  Also, are you having trouble with other spring-loaded shortcuts like CMD for Move or ALT for Eye Dropper?

Thanks,
David
