You will need to download the ISO CD image file from cisco.com.

Then use a CD burner to create a Recovery CD from that ISO file.

Put the CD into your sensor and reboot.

It should reboot from the CD and load a new image on the sensor.

That doesn't sound too healthy. You may want to try re-imaging that 4235 with a boot CD. You should be able to find a 5.x .iso image in the downloads.

Maybe you are logged into the service account. Do you get any response to sensor CLI (sh int) or Linux type commands (ls, pwd)?

You are logged into the service account. If you have another login, exit and log back in with administrator rights. If you can't, then reimage your sensor.
