Can you able to Ping the IP Address of the Switch ? ?

Try to reach switch via different VLAN router IP / different Fast Ethernet Port.

Else you need to reboot & activate the switch.

Pls Rate if Helps

actualy i can't be able to ping to the switch since the ip are not known to us !only we can access to the MSFC .so i need to access the blocked consoll port to fix the problems but i can't

I agree with Andrea, how do you have access to the MSFC ? and if so then what is your problem, are you running Native or Hybrid mode ?

If you can see this CAT 6509 device in CDP neighbor details in the neighboring Cisco Device...you will get IP of CAT 6509..which will be helpful..
