    Hi. I think it means "I don't seem to be able to figure out these instructions."

    As Englishstudent has answered in another thread similar to this question, I think it should be:'I can't quite understand these instructions'.

    It means that the person making the statement is telling you that they are finding it hard to understand the meaning of the instructions given.
