* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', when [[DisappearedDad Clyde's]] CoolStarship, the Hestia, is slowly being taken over by the [[ArtifactOfDoom Book of Darkness]], half the screens in the HolographicTerminal of TheBridge showing the damaged areas of the ship are shown to be in static. Clive's transmission to Gil Graham also gets cut off in static as he salutes his friend.

* A variation occurs in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation''. After the final night, [[spoiler: as the TV cuts to static at the end of the final episode of 'The Immortal and the Restless', you hear the sound of scraping metal. It's [[BigBad Ennard]], somehow having escaped the restaurant and presumably out to kill.]]

* This is becoming increasingly unlikely as {{technology marches on}}. To reduce the annoyance factor of static, most modern [=TVs=] are designed to show either a solid color or "No Signal" message if the signal cuts out. Of course, if you were watching something important (like a CCTV security camera), the switch to a blank screen would be just as shocking as the switch to static would have been.

* ''The Hidden'': The opening scene is a bank robbery as seen from a security camera. The last thing the robber does before leaving the building is shoot his shotgun at the camera, resulting in the Snowy Screen of Death.

** Also in season three, the station starts picking up transmissions they determine to be coming ''from'' the station�a number of day into the future. Some investigation confirms this to be a potential future (brought through an unstable time vortex) unless they travel through time to fill in some gaps in history. The message repeats over and over and always ends with static, implying the command center just got blown to bits.

* An early episode of ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' shows D'Argo in the midst of a [[UnstoppableRage Hyper Rage]] and is looking for something�anything�to destroy. He fixates on a repair drone, then we see D'Argo from the drone's perspective as he punches out its lights. Cue static.

* In Robert Sawyer's novel ''[=FlashForward=]'' (the basis for the [[FlashForward2009 unsuccessful TV series]]), all video recording devices show only static for the entire two minutes and 37 seconds of the first blackout, when all of humanity is unconscious. Sawyer has said this is meant to be confirmation of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observer_effect_%28physics%29 observer effect]].

* The queue line of ''[[Ride/SpaceMountain Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy]]'' at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks shows a video feed of outer space, which begins to glitch out before finally going to Snowy Screen and then to the Blue Screen of Death, hinting that the nebula ghost is near.
