When you say there is nothing do you mean that is all there is and then you get the router prompt again ?

Have you tried pressing the spacebar ?

Also you can try

"sh run | begin line vty"

this should take you to that line in the config and it would at least show you whether it has been accepted.

Hitting 'enter' will go one line at a time. If you press anything but space or enter it will exit the show and drop you to Router#.

Worst case, try 'term len 0' and it won't do any page breaks.

Pressing spacebar should allow you to go through the configuration page by page.

If you want to try this out you will need to set the term len back to what it was

router# term len 24

should do the trick.
