When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio. The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.
I wasn't able to access a parts explosion for the stereo but more than likely the stereo either uses a rotary encoder/pushbutton combo or two separate switches. The push button has probably worn out and requires replacement. Face plates are not that complicated when taken apart and you can try to wedge something in between the knob and the switch to give you more travel when pushing the power button, which might help the issue.
Find your Blaupunkt instructions on this free Code Entry website.
The exact instructions will depend on the radio model.
If your display is NOT working and you have the CORRECT code then the usual method to enter the code "blind" is to ADD 1 to each digit.
So Code 1234 would be entered "blind" as 2345
A typical Blaupunkt with a separate display is the model CAR300
Below are the Code Entry Instructions for that model
(Don`t forget to ADD 1 if you are entering the code "blind".) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INSTRUCTIONS TO ENTER
A BLAUPUNKT CAR 300 (no display ) RADIO CODE
Switch the ignition key ON
Press and hold AS button * and the ON button at the same time
Display Shows SAFE then goes to 10 - - - - with a "Beep" from the speaker
Press Preset Button " 1 "repeatedly until the 1st Digit of your Code is displayed
Press Preset Button " 2" repeatedly until the 2nd Digit of your Code is displayed
Press Preset Button " 3" repeatedly until the 3rd Digit of your code is displayed
Press Preset Button " 4" repeatedly until the 4th Digit of your code is displayed
If the display now shows the correct Code number then
Press Button AS and hold to Enter and if successful there should be a "Beep" from the speaker and
the radio should switch on
