There are two very common mistakes beginners make when using their new dSLR's for the first time. 1. Staying too near the subject. All lenses have a minimum focusing distance. Maximum is usually at infinity. If you have the 18-55mm kit lens, stepping back should solve your problem. 2. Shooting in the dark. Ordinary indoor lights are bright enough for the eyes but are very low for cameras. Low light to your eyes may as well be pitch black darkness to the camera. The camera does not see the way you do. Learn to adjust. Shoot only under well lighted conditions or if you really must do it in the dark, use flash and focus manually. Now, if the camera isn't even on then that's worse than a beginner's mistake.

Page 40 of your user manual discusses how to pick your focus points. Since you have an excellent entry level camera, you will soon want to get out of any auto exposure modes and pick exposures manually using the cameras light meter as a guide. Here is how you balance ISO, shutter speed and lens aperture. http://camerasim.com/camera-simulator/
