You can try to take a look at the process list to even see if they are running..
keeb at lily:~$ ps -ef | grep tty
root 3781 1 0 09:33 tty1 00:00:00 /sbin/getty 38400 tty1
root 3782 1 0 09:33 tty2 00:00:00 /sbin/getty 38400 tty2
root 3783 1 0 09:33 tty3 00:00:00 /sbin/getty 38400 tty3
root 3784 1 0 09:33 tty4 00:00:00 /sbin/getty 38400 tty4
root 3785 1 0 09:33 tty5 00:00:00 /sbin/getty 38400 tty5
root 3786 1 0 09:33 tty6 00:00:00 /sbin/getty 38400 tty6
If they are running, it's probably a problem someone else mentioned.
Hope this helps,
