I would guess the "chessboard" is down to the encoding technique used to transmit the data to the ground.  This is a progressive coding that gives the gross features of the image and then sends finer and finer refinements to get to the detail of the image.  If blocks get lost/corrupted then this would be just the sort of result you might expect.
