HAve you tried stop-N? That would reset the NVRAM to default values, that has 
helped me revive a couple systems...

To review, you would power up the system, then immediately hold down "stop" 
and "n" on a Sun keyboard, holding them down until the keyboard lights cycle 
twice... (the first is power up, the second is the reset) then simply release 
the keys and the systme *might* boot up.

You would do this with a Sun keyboard and VGA monitor attached, I'm sure you 
can use serial console to do this, but I don't know the equivalent key
