SOURCE: wont come on
Instead of just unplugging the TV, perform a power drain:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so the device is not grounded to the house. 2. Press and HOLD the product's own power button for 1 minute to drain the capacitors. 3. Plug the product back into a wall outlet and try to turn it on.
Note: This procedure works with battery operated devices as well so remove the batteries and hold down it's power button. Electricity can remain in capacitors and on circuit boards enough to prevent normal functionality. By clearing the residue electricity, your product will have a fresh start and many times this will resolve a buggy or non-responsive device that appears to be dead.
If the TV still won't turn on, then it appears something is wrong with it's mainboard since the TV is still receiving power because the standby light is still coming on. The cost of fixing an older TV's mainboard could be costly or impossible if the part is discontinued.

Your monitor has problems with instability in the circuits,This causes error voltages to appear in the feedback circuits and the unit goes into protection mode to protect itself from more damage If you are still under warranty take the unit to a service center for repair. If you are out of warranty, Then you have the choice of fixing it your self, but you must research the problem and have the technical know how to open the monitor and check the circuit boards for the problem. This also requires a certain amount of test equipment. A digital Multimeter and tools to open the case. Plastic pry bars use for furniture work well, or a plastic putty knife to unlock the inside latching around the case.You will also need screwdrivers and soldering iron and a solder ****** or solder wick to remove solder. You need to do this to remove components from the boards to test them. Most likely suspects are capacitors or diodes in the power supply or in the control board. You may need to check transistors and transformers to find more serious problems. There could be a bad IC in one of the regulator or signal circuits. AsYou can see this is not a easy task for a person will little experience and test equipment to check out the problems. You might have a friend who can help you with this who has the experience and tools . If you find you cannot solve these problems, you can either buy a new monitor or take yours to a repair shop for repairs. Hope this helps you out with your problems.

Somewhere along the line from the aerial there must be a signal splitter that feeds the upstair and downstair terminals.
Try to find that splitter and switch the output to see if the problem goes from up to downstair.
If it does switch then you know the problem is with the splitter block, and if it stays the same then the problem is with the cable and/or the connectors that run downstairs.
Also the reason you get a pixellated(snowy) picture is because of signal loss during the length of the cable you ran downstair.
If running a cable downstair becomes the best option to fix your problem , then you could buy a cheap 10db signal booster/r.f amplifier to correct the signal loss and a cable splitter to feed both tv`s
That booster would be installed upstair in your case(near the source of the signal to be amplified).
I could send you a small diagram if need be. Hope this will help and Merry Chrismas
