I changed my needle on my Brother VX-808 now the machine will not sew. The top thread is not grabbing the bobbin thread. I have taken the bobbin case out , removed the shuttle and put back. It runs as if it is sewing but it isn't. Thanks for any help.

try changing the needle clean under the needle plate & in bobbin area for lint or loose threads take the bobbin out & re-insert the bobbin in to the bobbin case if these suggestions don't work then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked
you might check your needle to see if it's bent
check in the bobbin area for any lint or loose threads
make sure there is a bobbin tail at least 2 to 4 inches long
hold the top thread tail ( at least 2-3 inch tail) as the needle goes down
to pick up the bobbin thread
I had the same problem with my brother vx-1120 sewing machine. I set the needle to lowest position by using the hand crank. Then I loosened the knerled set screw that holds needle in place. Then I moved needle shaft till the eye of needle is just lower than the hook on the shuttle loop maker. It made my mechine work. There are instuctions for ajusting timing on machine but I think these mechines are built to not fix and throw out. Just because there where no ajustment marks at all on machine, any machanical machine will needed to be ajusted sometime.
check you tension on the top thread and see if you have it threaded the right way. Also see if the indent of your needle "the indent down by the hole on the needle" is facing the hook by your bobbin case that grabs the thread when it comes around. Greg
