Solaris 9 server not responding

I'm in panic mode. This isn't a production server, however, is very vital to office.
Sun V240 with Solaris 9, stopped accepting ftp sessions. When I tried to remote into box, it didn't respond. I have tried rebooting to boot in single user mode, no luck. I can see that it is ON but I can't get it to respond to anything. It has three drives, all three drives light up when I power on the system and then lights out....
What is going on and how to I get my system back?

can you access the server from from serial port or via the integrated lom/rsc/sc port?

with a serial line use "hyperterm" from windows or "minicom" from linux with "9600 8n1" setting to access the serial console on the server.
if the netmgt (alom) is configured and connected to the network, you should be able to acces the server from remote via network.
