I logged into my console for the first time in quite a while to update my ghost blog. The problem is that it is unreadable. there are ascii characters which are not representing letters. Please help me reset this console to a more readable format. My droplet is not restarting and I cannot read anything on the screen.

I cannot post images, but you can see some screen grabs here:
