Power Telescope Tripod

My new telescope will not work!!!?

I bought an Uncle Milton "StarScope" on sale at Zellers and I assembled it and everything and when I look threw the eye piece it is just black and sometimes it like shows grey, and brown patches every now and then.

Features:

715mm focal length
72mm aperture
Erecting Prism
2x Barlow lens
2 eye pieces
Power range 38x - 206x
Red Dot finder scope
Red illuminated altitude/ azimuth dials
Illuminated compass
Metal tripod
Stellarium software

I am putting it in front of a window so I don't know if it is just reflecting back to my telescope without a clear image or what is going on. The guy at the store said they've only got good comments on this telescope but honestly it is just probably me because this is my first telescope.

Any help would be appreciated,

- Thanks.
One other question. what is a focuser? And how do I focus a telescope?

Well, I did a search on "Uncle Milton" and it seems to be a toy company. If I where you, I would box that piece of junk up, take it back and get a refund. If you are just starting out in astronomy, get a pair of binoculars. Use them, and if you are still interested, then invest in a real scope. Here is a pair of binoculars for $100. Check them out:
