Canon Rebel XT - Cannot get clear focus through viewfinder

Got the problem of not being able to get a clear image in the view finder...so I can't go into manual focus mode to get a clear picture cause its blurry in the finder, yet when I put it in the automatic focus mode, the picture comes out OK on the computer but blurry in the viewfinder still.

I've swapped lenses and determined that it is the body, any ideas on how to fix this problem?

its the diopter. little wheel to the right of your viewfinder.
you must have moved it. move it back to the center and you'll be good.

diopter is for people who wear glasses i believe. So that they can use the viewfinder without wearing glasses. Thats from my understanding

you set it at whatever is clear for you. If its clear for you at 0, then leave it at 0.
