First, make sure your Droplet is online. Open a terminal and try to ping it. If it pings that’s good, if it doesn’t try to restart it and use the recovery console:
The recovery console should work out of the box every time.
Additionally, try rebooting your Droplet to see if the connection to your Droplet Console is restored as well.
Is the droplet online at the moment? Are you able to ping the droplet IP?
Also, keep in mind that the droplet console is intended to grant access to your droplet in case of an emergency or recovery. Using ssh-client is recommended for day-to-day tasks, development and etc.
Here is the Droplet console docs:
