Providing you have checked to make sure the needle is in correctly, if the machine will not pick up the thread then the machine will need retiming.

first of all make sure you have the needle in the correct way round, flat side facing back, try a new needle, it only has to be slightly bent or blunt and it will miss stitches, the tension unit is the small piece near the takeup lever and it only has a small spring but that has nothing to do with the threading picking up, if the machine misses stitches after trying the above then you will need to retime the machine either bu a shop or by yourself, if you are sewing on fabric that collects static such as knitted fabric make sure you use an anti-static needle otherwise it will miss stitches.

Before all else. Turn off machine!
(1) break screws on the hook loose.
(2) tighten one back up very skightly, one you can reach when the needle bar is at its lowest position.
(3) lower needle bar to its lowest position.
(4) loosen the screw just tightened.
(5) position the tip of the hook behind the needle hole. the tip should be as close to the needle hole as possible without actually touching the needle
(6) tighten screws
(7) slowly hand turn the machine (depress the foot pedal to disengage clutch brake on motor) several revolutions to make sure the needle doesn't hit anything on the hook.
(8) if it passes this test, try on a scrap of fabric

Your timing has been messed up by breaking the needle. When the needle hit the bobbin race, it shoved the needle bar up and now the needle is not in the correct position to catch the bobbin thread when the race rotates. The needle has a little dip in the back, called the scarf. When you take the neddle plate off and watch it move, you should see the little hook pass through the scarf. That's how it makes the locking stitch and picks up the bobbin thread. Unfortunately, you will need to take this in to a dealer or service place to have them adjust the needle bar height. It's not a complicated task so see if they can check it while you wait. It may be more difficult to fix, like retiming the machine. But it doesn't sound like you've done any major damage to the mechanism.
