I suggest avoiding the Twinstar line of telescopes. These are sold by Taximarketer who sells a line of
disappointing scopes including the Baytronix 150/1400. It is best to
avoid Ebay unless you really know your stuff.
One reason is the lack of directions-- NONE!
However Meade telescopes maintains a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Look around the page and find one similar to your scope and download the manual for free.

I really don't understand the actual problem? You have the manual-- have you assembled the scope according to the manual?
If you have --- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope-- this is your LOWEST magnification. (Never use the 2x or 3x barlow that comes with these small telescopes -- it is useless-- just too much magnification. )
Now go outside during the daytime and point the telescope at a distant land object and practice focusing-- the moon should be your first target at night. Spend a little time during the day and line up the small finder scope which is usually mounted on top of the tube --- with the main telescope. Once they are lined up you can use the finder like a gun sight to point the telescope.

This is a refractor telescope. Download a manual from Meade. They all work about the same way.
Look under REFRACTOR:

This is a small refractor style telescope. You will not find a manual for that telescope. However MEADE telescopes maintains a web site for their REFRACTOR telescopes. They all assemble and are used the same way.
Look under the REFRACTOR heading on this web site for a manual similar to your telescope:
