Hi. Good Camera... Not being funny.. But do you have the instruction manual. If not first try resetting the camera. Once done, if you can live without live view don`t bother setting it up.

\015\012-set the mode to manual
\015\012-press menu, scroll to the third yellow box with the spanner icon.
\015\012-scroll to Clear all camera settings,choose clear and confirm your choice.
\015\012When you are shooting make sure your lens is switched in AF mode.
