- do you change the password for DBSNMP  or SYS as well? could you change the DBSNMP password to it's previous password then startup the OracleDBConsole Service?

Setting it back to the previous password as suggested above should work.  You should really set up an admin password profile that will not expire certain service level accounts.  Most security policies will allow for this.

You need to adjust ORACLE_HOME\[HOST]_[SID]\sysman\emd

Do you need any of the information from the dbConsole repository?

At this point, I suggest dropping and recreating the reposiroty.

Going from memory here but try:
emca -deconfig dbcontrol db -repos drop
emca -config dbcontrol db -repos create
