I recently purchased a refurbished D3200 camera with the 18-55mm lens. When I got it I started charging the battery and read the manual. Once the battery was charged I inserted it into the camera and looked through the viewfinder. What I saw was extremely dark and hardly recognizable. Also when the lens is in auto focus mode it will not take a picture. The lens keeps searching and will not lock onto anything. If I switch to live view I am able to take pictures or if I switch to manual focus on the lens I can take a picture. This is what I was looking at taking a picture of:

This is what I saw looking through the viewfinder:

Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? Or how to fix it? Thanks!
