The monitor i have for my GS seems fuzzy and not crisp. I have only been able to get into the setup menu so far. is this normal or should it be crisp?

thanks!

No, it's not normal. Yes, it should be crisp like a CRT.

I purchased it on ebay and in the pictures posted it looked fine. is it possible it could be a motherboard issue? Before i contact the seller i just want to make sure Its monitor issue.

thank you again for the reply.

If you remove the back cover from the Apple IIGS monitor, there is a focus knob you can adjust.

I have 3 of these monitors and they all got blurry over time. Luckily adjusting the focus is pretty easy. It's just inconvenient that the focus knob is inside the case instead of outside.
