You did not specify the problem but I will tell you what it is. The telescope is not suitable for astronomy AT ALL! You may be able to use it for bird watching but a good pair of binoculars would suit you better.
I have researched the scope and the best information I can get is they use actual glass for the lenses.
This is a toy or best suited for a knick-knack on a desk.
You do not need a professional telescope to see the moon/stars/planets. Orion,Meade and Celestron all make beginner scopes for under $200. Better yest, buy a good pair of binoculars and learn the night sky. If that piques your interest, then get a good telescope. If you find astronomy is not for you, you can always use the binoculars for other activities.

This is really considered to be a toy telescope, and is really not suited for Astronomy.

What is your problem?

Where can access a user manual for my Optisan Star70060 telescope


No manuals exits for that small telescope. The manual will not help you find objects in the night sky. Locate a local Astronomy club and the members will help you.

I need an Optisan Star 100114ii Telecope User Manual. Any advice where I could download one?


You will not find a manual for this small telescope. The manual only has assembly instructions. It does not tell you HOW to use the telescope, or how to focus, or how to find objects in the night sky.

Read my TIPS and then read this:

Buy these two books from amazon.com

Turn Left at Orion

and

How do i setup a jessops astronomical 800-80 ???


Why ndid you buy this toy telescope. Just because they run an ad and it's cheap does not mean it can actually be used for Astronomy.

This is a spotting scope a refractor style "toy" scope. You put the diagonal into the scope and then the eyepiece into the diagonal.

These scopes are terrible at any price.

Please read these two web sites before you buy another telescope:

I need a manual for optisan star 1000114II telescope


This appears to be a Newtonian style telescope on an equatorial mount-- they all work and assemble pretty much the same.

Look around the Meade manual web site for a similar assembly manual-- probably this one--

Try the other eyepiece first-- no one can fix that scope which is imported. No repair facilities or replacement parts. Next time stay away from those types of scopes-- buy from one of these NORMAL scope retailers--
