I can't find images in the collection: Germany Births and Baptisms, 1558-1898
Every record look at, just says: image unavailable. How can I view these images? Here is an example: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:C4LR-V3T2
I've tried it on other colections, and it doesn't happen there. Anyone know what's going on?

The example you posted, for Adam Gerhard Eyssen, is on Film 949275.
Checking the catalog for that film, it shows as not available for viewing from home.
Some records are restricted by the original record creator/holder and can only be viewed in Salt Lake. Others may be available at Affiliate Libraries or Family History Centers. I checked a new names at random in that collection, and some can be viewed from home. You may be able to request a copy from Remote Access Services.

@AlexanderTijm; the record that you reference is from the collection, Germany Births and Baptisms, 1558-1898. This is a legacy collection, As such, we are told that no additional records will be added, or any corrections made to the data.
Notwithstanding the above statement, I see that the collection was updated in August 2022; possibly due to contractual changes. When viewing the collection, I see this statement, "Due to privacy laws, recent records may not be displayed." Looking at the record that you provided, I would not expect that an 1864 christening would be considered to be "recent;" therefore, I would try to determine if this might be a problem that can be corrected.0
I've been using this collection for Versmold in the 1700s. It is not a privacy concern. In 2021, the INDEX suddenly became unsearchable. The indexed record could be seen, but was not searchable. I had to search for the person in the tree to find the record. Then I could see the record. If there are any records not attached to someone in the tree, they are not findable.
Also in 2021, the month and day of all marriages were delete from the index. I have several examples that I happened to save before this change. They used to show month, day, and year for the marriage. The index now shows only year.0
The Protestant records are also at Archion. You can buy a month of unlimited views, and 50 downloads, for a small fee.
The Catholic records are probably available on Matricula.0
