Handheld Sewing Machine Not Stitching

I have a handheld sewing machine. The first time I used it, it worked perfectly. Then I used it on a cotton material, at first, it was skipping (jumping stitches) then it stopped stitching. Now the machine is working as if there is no thread in it when sewing. The sound is still the same when sewing, only it is not stitching.

Handy sweing maching is not working. When use it thread comes out of needle.

When I got mine it wouldn't sew either. The needle was threaded and it went up and down but it wouldn't make a stitch, just empty holes.
SOLUTION: loosen the screw that is holding the needle in place and pull the needle down a bit, making it longer and also make sure it is facing frontwards. Tighten the screw and try. If it still doesn't work do the steps again until it stitches. If the needle is not long enough and going deep enough into the hole, the strike plate in the bottom (inside. You can't see the strikeplate) is not getting triggered by the needle, completing a stitch.

This did not solve the issue, as I knew it wouldn't because it was sewing the piece of fabric it came with perfectly fine. It only acted up once I changed to my own fabric.

I had the same problem but was able to fix it!

Loosened the screw that holds the needle and pulled the needle a bit lower. And fastened the needle again. Works perfectly now

If it is acting like that that means there is a malfunction and you should probably exchange it. Same thing happened to me so I exchanged it and it worked perfectly fine. The problem is that this is not made that long ago so they're still working on changes and other handheld sewing machines might have a slight change by how they're made. Just think about it, the slightest change can make a big difference. Also think about the materials used.
