You mean like the infamous Windows Blue Screen of Death that no one EVER hopes they see?

Haven't seen it.

Or are you thinking more along the lines of an old 4x3 tube-style TV set turning off?

Or perhaps the screen just goes to static?

There are all sorts of ways to go here.

If your screens are projectors, you could have it cut to the blue screen that says, "No input detected" or whatever it says. Then have it flicker after a second or two, cut to white, black, white again, then "restart" the video.

To emphasize the effect, make there be a small fuzz in the background of your audio that goes away when it cuts to the blue screen so the absence of sound is more apparent.
