I have the Activa 131 and while the needle is made to stop in the up position, all you have to do is push the bottom of the peddle quickly with your heel and the needle goes into the material and stays until you start sewing again. Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: needle position
this wheel does seize over a period of time.Remove the top cover so that you can see the wheel. It can be unseized by spraying a mixture of 20% ammonia to 80% water under the wheel. Let it sit for 20-30 minutes, spray it again and then turn it with a pair of pliers. Do NOT break it!! use a soft cloth around it if you want to protect the wheel from scratches.

You may have a bent bar inside the machine (big trouble), needle error is easy it is just to wind the big nob at the back of the machine, make sure you are on the correct needle when you move it, on mine it is a little stiff, just do it slowly. The engineer just bent my bar back into shape, that was 1yrs ago. Good luck have fun :-)

I found the manual, in case you don't have one, HERE. On page 30, it has an illustration showing two buttons, and the presser foot lever. If you press the button once or twice, it will raise the needle.
> Press (Needle position button) once or twice to raise the needle.
> The needle is correctly raised when the mark on the handwheel is at the top, as shown below. Check the handwheel and, if this mark is not at this position, press (Needle position button) until it is.
Get the manual if you don't have one, that will give you so much more than any here can do, but I think that should solve you trouble, Please rate and comment, Thank You,
