This to say the least is not good and I would focus some attention in that area and see if you can get the monitor to light up!
Video will be posted shortly . I apologies if the camera is shaky, This is the process I do every single time until it turns on.

Here are images I provided for the back end of the monitor and the monitor cable.If you want more images I will be more then happy to provide.

it's likely to be the vga cable as the power is fine and the monitor can detect the vga after reconnecting cable several times. you can try using another cable, a new one to be sure.

The focus isn't all that great on the top left picture above. But looking at it now maybe the black plastic coating isn't worn and exposing the wire underneath? Best test will be with another monitor and see what happens.
