Yes. Open the bobbin and u will see a screw pressing down a metal sheet, which is actually a spring.
This is meant for adjusting the top tension. Loosen this screw by quarter or half a turn and see if it is giving the desired result. You may have to try a few settings before you arrive at the even top and bottom tensions when your thread tension adjustment scale is midway position.
Please note that you adjust the thread tension on the machine to adjust the bottom tension(not the top) .
Please let me know if this solved the problem.

SOURCE: I have a Brother LS-2220
If, it were me I would call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and order from them, I am sure that it runs less than $25.and you know that it is the right one for your machine. Just another thought, there are other parts sites online www.sewingpartsonline.com but you have to know the part number. Also, did you try super glue?

SOURCE: the needle of my sewing
This unit has a 2 year back to base warranty.
Try removing and replacing the needle.
Unfortunately machines with predominately plastic frames are prone to misalignment that even professionals will not bother repairing because it will re-occur quickly (I have been told).
Check that the arm is in place as it should be. and the needle is not bent.
The user guide may also provide more information, check here for replacement parts and further info.
