That means the self-tests have passed and it is ready to boot.

Right, it's trying to use the graphics console.  The diag switch
forces console interaction onto ttya.  Use q to get from the diag
program out to the monitor prompt, then use this incantation:

	> q 1f
	EEPROM 01f: 00? 10
	EEPROM 020: 00? q

There!  Now you have set the console to ttya.
