    I started to fill the bobbin, half way full, all the lights started flashing and an error tone sounded. If I shut it off and turned it back on the error cleared. I can sew with not problem, but cannot fill the bobbin, or again get the error.

Try to sew with a straight stitch on the furthest left side of the foot. Now, try to sew on the furthest right side. Did you stop sewing on one side or the other? If it did you can be sure it needs to be timed by a repairman.

Skipping stitches with horizontal movement. Vertical stitching is good

Check with straight stitch on needle left position. Now, try straight stitch on right needle position. Did you miss some stitches? Just let the repairman know your results and they will know exactly what the problem is.

How do I adjust the needle position for straight sewing?

The stitch Width selection regulates straight-stitch or zig-zag width. Needle position does not determine straight or zig-zag. Needle position just determines whether the needle's home position is center, left, or right. Needle position can be used with straight or zig-zag stitching.

Straight stiches great. select any other stitch and it stitches about an inch and then stops

Test: With straight stitch and needle on left side sew.
With straight stitch and needle on right side sew.
Does one of the two sew and the other not sew?
The reason is the timing of the needle and bobbin are not set right. In other words it is in need of timing from a repairman.

Some machines are not designed to sew the straight stitch with the needle in the center position. Some are left or right position to do that and it is simply the way they were designed. Linda at Relics
