Not power cord problem, more likely it has dying power supply due to bad caps with domed tops, that will be the first place to look.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Light on power on switch keeps blinking, screen blank.


Definitely a problem with the monitor. If you can get the back open then look at the main board and the power board. You will want to look for puffy capacitors. Instead of a flat top it will look puffy like its pregnant.

If you find any like that then you need to replace them with new capacitors that have the same Uf rating and at least the same voltage or higher.

This will take some unsoldering and soldering skills. Make sure the stiped edge gets aligned with the striped edge on the board.

If you replaced them then the monitor should turn back on. If it doesn't then its a screen problem and you'll need to get a new monitor.

Power on and monitor goes to sleep mode


You need to try it on another PC, alos verify if the VGA cable is good. If nothing change, then you need to open it up, first thing to look for are the capacitors in the power supply. Look for cpas with bulging top/seal, see example of failed monitors here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Most likely means your monitor is shot. Either the power supply crapped out or maybe a capacitor. Either way, if that's the case then you're going to need a new one because it's definitely too expensive to repair it.
