Hiya,
I did this last week for a Vivaro that I have just bought.
This will defo get it out of safe mode and will get it working again If you have the code... Switch engine on with stereo off. Hold down AS button then turn the stereo on...safe mode should dissapear then press number one until the right digit is in the box and continue until the 4 digits are in. Then hold AS down then turn the stereo off again.

If you don't have the code contact the dealer for it usually £25 or buy the code online if you get the code number from the back of the stereo. Look for Grundig stereo codes or something like that online, there are loads on ebay.

Anyway

Good luck

Louise

My opel vivaro van on 7 safe and I pressing the as button and on and wont give me the ----


You must leave the radio ON like this until the SAFE mode clears.

When it does, to get the code accepted, press AS and then a couple of seconds later the 'on' button, together until it beeps.
As you know you will then see 4 dashes. Each dash is a number from your code.
Use the numbers along the radio (1 is first number in code, 2,3 and 4 the other numbers and so on)

As an example, if your code was 4432

press button '1' 4 times (gives a 4)
button '2' 4 times (gives a 4)
button '3' 3 times (gives a 3)
button '4' 2 times (gives a 2).

When you see your code displayed correctly on the screen press AS until you hear a beep.

Hi my name is mike and have a serious problem with my playstation 3 well my system froze up in the middle of a game so i turned it off to reset it and now a red screen comes up and says a serious error has...


Try to start to the system in safe mode to check if this will resolve the problem.Safe mode is available to PS3 system software version 2.60 or later. To do the safe mode follow these steps:
  1. Verify that the power indicator on the PS3 system is solid red, and then turn off the MAIN POWER switch.
  2. Turn on the MAIN POWER switch, then touch and hold the power button.
  3. Keep touching the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.
  4. After 10 seconds, you will hear another short beep and the system will shut down (release the button at this point).
  5. Touch and hold the power button again.
  6. Continue touching the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.
  7. Release the button when two short beeps are emitted after 7 seconds.
  8. As instructed by the on-screen message, press the PS button to start up in safe mode

I have a vauxhall combo merit 1.7d 2003 witht he radio in safe mode. how do you enter the radio code into the radio when it wont accept any digits?


Hi Mate,

If you hold down the AS button while the unit is off - Then (whilst still holding the AS button) switch it on, you will hear a beep. It'll come up with 10 SAFE (this is the amount of attempts you get, so decreases the more times you get it wrong ie 9 safe 8 safe etc) then it'll come up with 4 dashes. Then if your code is, say, 4239, you press

the 1 key - 4 times
2 key - 2 times
3 key - 3 times
4 key - 9 times

hope this helps

My vauxhall stereo is stuck on safe mode how do i unblock it i have lost the code


1. turn ignition on (dash warning lights on)
2. If radio turned on, turn it off.
3. Press AS button in, and hold it in while turning radio on.
4. Wait approx 10 seconds (do not release AS button).
5. Radio should beep, and display should now read 10 - - - - (assuming no tries have been made in the past with the wrong code)
6. use pre-set button "1" to scroll the first digit in the display to the number you want (it goes 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 then back to 0)
7. Use pre-set "2" for second digit, etc.
8. Once display reads 10 followed by the four digit security code press and hold AS button for about 10 seconds, until the radio beeps.
9. If correct code entered display will now read "code" briefly, followed by"memory-U" briefly, then radio will reprogram it self.
10. If radio goes back to "safe" the code number is incorrect, or you mis-keyed it.

Note: entering the code incorrectly 10 times will render the radio useless.
After the first 3 tries you need to leave the radio on and the ignition on for increasingly long periods of time before it will let you try again. 7 safe need you to wait at least 30 mins, and more like 1 hour.

WARNING - you only have a max of 10 attempts to get it right, but if still no luck after the 8th attempt, STOP and contact a Vaux dealer.
