My monitor has been having issues for the past few weeks.
It seems like every time I turn it off the screen it stays blank when I turn it back on.
It's been pretty hard trying to get it back on.

My guess would be it likely has bad electrolytic capacitors in its power supply - this is common and a likely cause of that symptom. Whether a fault is worth repairing in a monitor of that size is a question, since replacment monitors have become cheap. People who are handy with a soldering iron have been replacing capacitors for themselves, but you need to prove it's that first by opening up the monitor and finding leaking or bulging capacitors.
