What power eyepiece are you using? Use an intermediate power eyepiece like 20mm. This will give you a really nice view of the Moon. Too high a magnification eyepiece, will cause blur views.

The view disappears when the eyepiece is inserted. There is no change in focus at all.

You must FIRST put the eyepiece in and THEN focus.

Take the scope outside during the daytime. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object. These articles may also help you.

and watch this Celestron video: for the 127 EQ very similar to your telescope:

Barska information

Barska is one of the many brands stamped on Asian made optics. Many of the models they sold were sold by Celestron and others. Go to the Celestron web sit and poke around in the download archives.for manuals and I'm sure you can find a manual that covers a model similar to your Barska. Start with the FirstScope series.

Their is a lot of excellent astronomy freeware available, just google for it.
