It is. The VT131 has additional firmware.

In the meantime, I've found my VT100 manual. A flashing "4" means keyboard
faulty or nort present. For completeness, "2" means a memory fault, and
"8" means a data error. "6" is the logical OR of "2" and "4", etc. If
only the keyboard test fails, the terminal should go online in receive-only
mode (ie it's useful as a display).
