Press M S C and take a look at the options:
Display Character Set
Keyboard Character Set
Posting Character Set
Unknown Character Set
You want to set Display Character Set to ISO-8859-1, which is what
your terminal can handle. Read the help text to understand what this
option does, since the behavior you want to set is combined between
the values of these options.
I hope this helps.
