Have you tried the light fixture on different sockets on that power strip? Perhaps one of them is defective. Or try a different power strip.

I even tried the same outlet as the strip is plugged into and still did it. I have had it plugged in either one before. But then it started not to work all a sudden

I am suspecting perhaps it might be the wiring in the fixture's power plug.

I was only thinking it might have been the wiring because of the amount of plugging and unplugging it's been through (handling).
If you've been able to successfully replicate the issue multiple times, then it's probably not the wiring.
Do you have another power strip you can try it out with?
