Catalyst 3550 won't let me login via console

I'm trying to reconfigure a 3550.

I've connected the familiar blue cable to the switch and I'm getting all the familiar text on my screen.

However, after it tells me to "press return to get started", I hit the return button and the text just scrolls by and returns to the same message.

No prompt appears.

Can anybody tell me how I can login to this Catalyst?

Hello Beheer,

verify the cable and your console settings on another device.

Hope to help

Re: Catalyst 3550 won't let me login via console

sounds like the switch has AAA configured or (misconfigured) and allowing console access. the only way is to use the password recovery procedure (rename the current config and verify it when you boot the switch with a blank config).
