Question about Husqvarna Designer I
It will sew just can't change the needle position
I think the needle mechanism is out of adjustment. In the center position, is the needle centered over the hole in the needle plate (check with a plate that has the single hole for straight stiching, not the slotted hole for zig-zag sewing). Take it to a professional for a tune up.

SOURCE: Needle position is too far left
It sounds like you have an alignment problem. You can try to move the needle over with the stitch button and run you machine by hand for the first go. If it jumps back over - you are going to have to take it in to be looked at. Good Luck!

It could still be either problem. Lowering the needle is kind of like curing a cough by not breathing. You still don't know if you have bronchitis or emphysema, but you will stop coughing.
Is the needle centered in the plate side to side?
Does your zigzag have equal clearance on either side in the plate?
Check timing by lowering needle bar to lowest position and then raise it 2.5mm, push the hook back into the driver and the tip of the hook should center on the needle. (raising the bar 2.5mm is easily done with a setting gauge available to authorized technicians)
If timing is correct, set the needle bar height by loosening the screw in the cross head and adjust the bar up or down so that the hook crosses above the eye of the needle while in the far right needle position.
Adjusting the bar height will be the equivalent of lowering the needle but check the timing first. If it is off, the machine will sew but the stitch quality will be poor.
You really should try to find an authorized repair technician in your area. If you change the wrong thing you may make the problem worse and it will just cost that much more when you have someone fix it for you. Also, the tolerances are very close on these adjustments. You may thing that raising the needle about 2.5mm is close enough on the timing check. For that measurement, there is no tolerance. If you go to 2.4 or 2.6 your stitch quality will suffer.
