ManualsLib has the manual for the BabyLock Quest Plus (BLQ2-PL) here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/537167/Baby-Lock-Quest-Plus-Blq2-Pl.html#product-Quest%20PLUS%20BLQ2-PL . The needle stop position button is the top button above the reverse button. To adjust the needle position for straight stitches, you press the stitch width button on the sewing machine. Pressing the - button will move the needle to the left; pressing the + button moves it to the right. The machine should start with the needle centered. See page 49 of the manual for the pictures of the machine button and the stitches that allow for needle position changes. To avoid damage, you can't move the needle left or right for most zig-zag stitches. The needle will move to the left and right from the center based on the desired stitch width.
I hope this helps. If your sewing machine needle isn't centering the needle correctly when you turn on the machine, it may need to be serviced.
I will need more information on what kind of machine you are using, make and model will help tons. First instinct is your embroidery arm needs to be calibrated to it's center or "home position". Some machines allow this to happen every time you are finished using the embroidery arm, it's the "storage position".
1. If the design came from the internet or a design package, it's possible that it's "center" has not been centered properly. To correct this you need to open the design in the Husqvarna Viking software and click on the "Center in Hoop" icon. That function redefines the center of the design so it will align properly in any hoop that it fits within. If you have 3d software, after clicking on that icon you physically have to put the black crosshair that designates the center in the design, in the very middle of the hoop and then save the design to your computer, then send it to the machine. The 4d software automatically centers the design in the hoop when you click on the icon.
If you have the software and you "combine" any designs together you must always click on the center design icon to recalculate or redefine the center position and then move the design's center to the middle of the hoop before saving the design. This way you center the designs center positoin around the needle position. Meaning that when you hit the start button on the machine, where ever the needle is, is where the center of your design is.
You can try to calibrate the hoops by having the machine turned off and the largest hoop and smallest hoop ready hold down the start/stop button and the needle theader button and turn the machine on while holding those in, you should get a different screen that say a/d test in the upper left corner, put the largest hoop on the machine being shure the screws are tight and hit the l button on the upper right side the numbers next to the button will change, then put the smallest hoop on and hit the ss button once the thats done turn off the machine and on again and it will start normally and try your designs again if that doesnt work take it to a brother service center/ dealer and tell them to check your x-axis position
When you switch the machine on with the embroidery unit on, it is suppose to calibrate itself and move the bottom left position. If not, the problem lies with the embroidery unit. If the machine is still under warranty your dealer should fix it free of charge.
