Why won't needle threader go down low enough to meet the hole in the needle?

Try raising the needle so the threader does not have to go so low. The owner's manual should have instructions on what height the needle should be set for using the threader.

Here is the information from the owner's manual (Page 20):

Auto needle threading device
If using special threads which wind quickly off the
thread spool, attach a net to the spool before using.
Cut the net to match the size of the spool.
1 Net
2 Thread spool
3 Spool pin
4 Spool cap
1. Guide the thread through the wire loop thread
guide (number "6") and gently pull the thread
towards you.
2. Lower the presser foot.
3. Lower the needle threader lever until it stops.
Hook the thread into the guide and pull it
across to the right.
1 Wire loop thread guide
2 Needle threader lever
3 Guide
The needle threading device CANNOT be used
while the needle is LOWERED.

4. Push the needle threader lever toward the back.
Check to be sure that the hook has passed
through the eye of the needle and route the
thread under the metal guides and the hook.
Pull the thread toward you and check that it is
being held by the thread hook.
Here's where you can find the manual instructions:

Automatic needle threader won't work on brother pe-770

Always make sure the hand wheel is at the exact top. Have you replaced the need recently? If it's bent, then the threader will not work. If the needle is loose or not all the way to the top in the holder, it will also cause the threader to not work.

Stitching trouble

Here is a trouble shooting chart -

I would start with cleaning (see maintenance section of the user's manual).

This has to be done more often with sewing/embroidery machines that have a drop-in bobbin.

Be sure to use bobbin thread for machine embroidery.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This will insure the thread is seating into the tension control.
