Hi - unfortunately, putting the tension back together takes alot of training - not only do you have to re-install the parts correctly so the hook is in the correct position and the bobbin is in the correct position when the needle moves down thru the needle plate and into the bobbin case to pull up the bobbin thread. Further, you need to set what called the timing - your needle needs to enter the bobbin dead on center and to a very precise depth. Technicians often use a special tool to set the timing, because each machine has a different a different hook and bobbin case.
I know this won't win me any points, but you will probably need to take the machine to a repair shop to have the hook replaced or reinstalled. If you mechanically inclined, you can search the web for a service manual for your machine - the service manual will illustrate how to replace the hook and specify the timing and needle depth settings.

you can purchase a new tension dial here
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/tension-brother-vx-800-sewing-machine.aspx for your machine. This may be simpliest solution.
there is also a manual on that site http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-book-brother-vx810-sewing-machine-instruction-manual.aspx but I can't see images to know if it includes an exploded diagram of the tension dial.
