Comupter Monitor turns on over 1-2 hours

  833944 18:48 21 May 2020

In the morning when I turn it on it shows a very dim picture. This last for 10 to 40 minutes. Then the picture will get normally bright on the right half fading to about 1/3 brightness of normal on the left. The monitor will then go black. When I turn it off and back on I will repeat this two to three times and then the monitor will look as though it turns on normally, but then go black. After several dozen times turning it on and off (quickly, with no waiting from appearing normal to going black) it will crackle and I will get a normal picture and it will stay on and function normally. Any ideas why does doing this or how it can be fixed? I know it's not the computer because my other secondary monitor works just fine in both ports. Tech support isn't an option .
