The last time someone has this issue on the forum typing 'return' a couple of times (once should be enough?) brought up the 'ok' prompt.
I accept you may have done that.
After that at least two options may be possible:
... The machine has faulted and powered off .... you should be able to determine that back at the alom, ( actually the lights are green so that is probably not the case)
... auto-boot? was true and The machine has "hung" during the boot process
It is real mystery for me now

bootscript="setenv auto-boot? false"
Are you sure you want to power off the system [y/n]? y
SC Alert: Host System has Reset
sc> console -f
Enter #. to return to ALOM.
pressed Enter multiple times
same problem. blinking black box no "ok>"
This could be caused because the console output is not directed to the ttya (Net MGM port), it could be redirected to ttyb (serial MGM port) or screen if the server has a video card, in order to fix this you should change the OBP variable "output-device" to ttyb instead of ttyb or screen, but as you are not able to reach an OK prompt you should use the ALOM "bootmode bootscript="setenv output-device ttya"" command
sc> bootmode bootscript="setenv output-device ttya"
