Why wil it not pick up the bobbin thread to complete the stitch
Do this by turning the wheel by hand. The bobbin thread will make a small loop on the way up. Move something thin from front to back, catching the top thread under the needle and the bobbin loop thread will come out. Move both threads towards the back and go!

clean it using a can of air to make sure there is not any fabric or dust caught in the under area. the needle could be bent slighly just replace it.
these are the two things I look for when this happens with my machine. needle is the one most offten causing the problem.

Can not do by yourself. Mine did the same thing after just having it 3 weeks and I had to take in to authorized Singer Dealer to repair. Now without machine for several weeks and probaly out alot of money for repair. Should have got a Brother!! Hope you have better luck than me.

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.

Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
