A Couple of possibilities.... ?

1. If your using the 13W3 on the rear, do you have a VSIMM installed ?
2. If you have a VSIMM installed, do you have it in the correct slot ?
3. Is your sun keyboard working and plugged into the correct port ?
4. Any idea if the sun keyboard port on your 20 is bad ?

If all the above is good, try powering up the 20 while holding down
STOP-N on the Sun keyboard (Stop and 'N' keys) till you get a display
or the machine is obviously booting with no display... this should
reset the nvram.
