And mission saved because EECOM controller remembered a test that had the same garbled pattern on his screen. He told the crew (through the Capcom) to "Try SCE to Aux". The NY other person who knew what he meant was LMP Alan Bean. Fortunately the switch was by his head. He flipped it and telemetry was restored. 

Among flight controllers the term SCE to Aux is considered legendary.

Btw, SCE stands go Signal Conditioning Equipment. The SCE converts raw signals from instrumentation to standard voltages for the spacecraft instrument displays and telemetry encoders.
