I have noticed that loading and unloading media for the source and sometimes program window, ata random time the play button and the space bar will not function.
It appears that the play head fails to load/draw on the screen as in this sample.
If you click on the timeline in some place, any place, the play head will draw, and you then can play using space bar or the play buttons.
This is after I clicked on the time line:
Basicaly, there is some seriose logic issues with the redraw of both source and program monitor and its random not predicable.
trash the preferences
Thanks Carlos, Ann's good eye on the position of the play head turned out to be the issue.
Trashing preferences resets the program to its factory defaults

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.

• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.
If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site. If NVIDIA, do a clean install of the latest Studio Driver (NOT the Game Driver)
If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.
Also, please help us help you:

Playhead won't play as it is at the end of the sequence: perfect normal behavior if you have this setting in the Pref unchecked.
Ann, I can't believe I Missed that!
I guess in my excitement to test, I must have let the video play out, and didn't notice the head at the very end.
An embarrassing moment, as soon as I read your note I knew it, but of course I just checked and yes, this is exactly what appears to be happening.
I have not had this before, but your 100% correct here. User error on my part.
Thanks for catching it.
