Question about Televison & Video
After resetting the power breaker, tv needs to be reset. Direct TV said the tv jumped its programming. Channel 3 is what is used for direct tv & is solid blue. Channel 2 and other channels are snowy, wide vertical band and vertical lines trying to show content???
The garbage on your unused channels are not important, just artifacts from signals not strong enough to produce a picture.
The 'blue screen' on #3 is what many sets use when they sense they are connected (terminated) to 'something' but not receiving any signal.
If sounds a lot like DTV's receiver took a hit.
If you have a second set you can borrow or drag to the receiver, try it first but I don't think it is your problem unless the cable input on it was zapped.
