SOURCE: Why can't I see anything?
Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the scope and try again. Contact Bushnell directly for repairs:

SOURCE: Hi, a few days back
Stars will always appear as points. It is not possible to magnify them enough to see them as disks because they are all extremely far away. A telescope will however show you stars and other objects that are too dim to see with the naked eye.
You will be able to see the planets as disks, and even features on the planets, such as the bands on Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the phases of Venus, and also moons around some planets. There are other objects that will show more detail when magnified, such as nebula. You will be able to see a lot of craters and other detail on the Moon.
Your problem is simply that you are not pointing the telescope at these objects. This seems to be one of those telescopes that "automatically" finds objects, but these so called "go to" scopes only do this when they are set up properly. I can't say what step(s) you have missed, but clearly even if the scope thinks it is pointed at the moon, if you can't see the moon, it is NOT pointed there. The Moon will fill the field of view even with the least powerful eyepiece. If you are seeing stars as points, then the eyepiece is focussed and working properly.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x or 3x barlow if you have one. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object like the top of a telephone pole or a distant building. Turn the focuser knob until the image comes to focus.

First find a local Astronomy club -- the members will help you.
Second, you must first align the red dot finder with the main tube-- there are knobs on the side and bottom (usually) to move the red dot. Point the scope at the top of a telephone pole in the distance during the day time-- wget the top in the center of the eyepiece of the main tube. Without moving the main tube adjust the red dot so it points at the exact same spot.
Turning it all the way in or out is NOT how you focus-- there is a small "spot" when the eyepiece is in focus, and every other eyepiece must be refocused. Turn the knob slowly until the star or the moon comes to sharp focus.
