Remove the keyboard and mouse; if a keyboard is attached, there will
be no output to the terminal.

For good measure, you can try (with keyboard) to hold down the
L1 (or stop) key together with the N key during power-on; this will
reset the EEPROM.


That is somewhat strange; typically it would attempt to boot from
the CD and then stop.

Disconnect the keyboard then retry.

Disconnect the Sun Keyboard and Mouse!! When it sees keyboard and mouse
it thinks output should be sent to the graphics device and monitor.

Without the keyboard and mouse you set your VT100 to 9600 baud (8N1) 8
bits, no parity and 1 stop bit. You should then get a prompt from the
PROM Monitor displayed on the VT100.

Also, a null modem RS232 cable is required, or a null modem adapter
applied to the end of your RS232 cable.
