請問這句話是什麼意思?

關掉電視或收音機會是一片空白嗎? 不就完全沒有影像和聲音嗎?

不過如果"cut on" 等於 "switch on" 那"static" 又代表何意?

    "cut on" in "cut on the television" or "cut on the radio" means "turn on". The reason is "cut" has the meaning of "switch", for example:

    cut the power,

    cut the volume,

    ...

    Now, it uses with "on", so it means "turn on" or 'switch on".

    This sentence itself does not very clearly indicate such a meaning, please take a look at the following link or sentences, you will get the idea:

    I was hungry and was about to fix a sandwich, and my friend cut on the T.V., and there it was.

    I was about to go to bed and cut on the TV when I was unable to sleep.

    You can google "cut on the TV" or "cut on the radio", you will people use it to mean "turn on" or 'switch on".

    "static" means when radio or TV cannot receive the signal, it will give you "static sound" ( 靜電噪聲), or snowy screen (no imagine, but just black and white spot), you can refer to:

    這也是我疑惑之處 如果是關掉 怎麼會出現靜電干擾的訊號 或一片空白

    cut on會不會是等於turn off的意思呢?

    為什麼這裡用的是cut on呢?
