    It appears to be a common problem with the MD731X range of monitors. It's not the inverter unit but appears to be on the power board. Still working o the problem unless someone has a fix for this

    have same problem medion 17inch seems to be with most of these monitors its not the video card it is the inverter which seems to fail after about 2 yrs of use which is not right medion must have lots returns for this monitor, you can either send back under warranty or if out of warranty get a new inverter which you should be able to find on ebay or a compatable one online.

My MD7317 did the same thing until I actually installed the driver for it. My windows did not have the correct driver in it's driver base, so I found the driver online ( took a few minutes of searching) and within a few minutes of installation the monitor displayed a great colorful picture. Naturally, I had to use another monitor while I was searching. Driver is about 3.3 megs. It came in a zip format. I did not keep track of the link to driver, but it omly took a few minutes to locate it.

This issue could be any number of problems. The most likely one is your video card / onboard video on your computer is not working. Try attaching your monitor to another computer and see if it works. If it does, then it is definitely the video card on your computer. Other causes could be bad VGA cable or bad monitor itself but 95% of the time it is the computer's video.

Hi, my monitor does not display anything but the lid light just keep blinking.

You should check your display cable from CPU to Monitor. If it just blinking then problem with you connection bitween CPU and Monitor So just check and keep enjoy.

It could be the Monitor, the VGA adapter, or the PC itself. If you power on the monitor without anything connected to it, do you ever see anything on the display?

If not, it is probably the Monitor. If yes, it is likely the vga adapter and/or PC.

Takes to long for the monitor to start

This is a power supply problem in the monitor. There is an unstable component or components that are failing or you have some cold solder joints in the connections.The reason it turns on is that some components are self healing and will sometimes stabilize after warm-up periods.Cold solder joints sometime close after heating up in the circuit You should return to dealer for repair or replacement. Hope this helps you.

look for capacitors with the tops bulging .. these are high failure rate chinese made capacitors .. they made zillions of them and they fail frequently .. replace any that have buldging tops (should be flat with over pressure vent lines impressed)

i have some 19 inch medion monitors that have the same problem .. they make a lot of noise and the screen might be jittery/fuzzy ... i found the following:

several capacitors in the power supply (inside the monitor) had their tops buldging .. that shows that internal pressure was high in the caps, usually caused by them being hot and thats caused by high internal leakage .. the caps may eventually blow out the tops (explosion vents) .. the caps are designed to do that instead of becoming a bomb ..

all the bad electrolytic capacitors i have seen so far on these monitors, motherboards and other electronics have been chinese made .. they made millions of bad caps over several years ..

almost all the bad caps had buldged tops but not always .. once in a while i see one thats open but not bulbged .. probably venting elsware ..

i changed the obviously bad caps and the monitors returned to like new performance ..

i dont know about the 17 inch but the 19 inch medion flat pro display is not too hard to take apart .. about 30 screws or so ... speakers have to be unscrewed and you have to be careful not to stress cables that go to the push buttons .. of course you have to know how to solder without bridging paths
