K200 blurry & not adjustable

Hi, I'm new to dslr but i recently found a k200 for sale for 300 and i thought it was a great deal but when i tested the camera out everything was blurry in the view finder no matter how much i adjusted the lens. even the red lights at the bottom when you look into it were blurry...but when i took a picture and viewed it on the screen it wasn't blurry at all. i didn't buy the camera because i wasn't sure if i would be able to fix the problem. would it be something to do with the lens or would something have to be replaced in the camera itself? i appreciate any help on this or thoughts on wether its still worth getting!! thanks !

Did you try adjusting the diopter on the viewfinder?
That is what is sounds like to me.

Sounds like the dioptre. It's easy to adjust and in about 2 seconds your problem will be solved, I think. The manual describes what to do.

In case you didn't get a manual with your purchase, here's a PDF version of the K200D manual:
