I just had the EXACT same problem, and 5 hours searching on the web got me nowhere. I set the lockout code, but it will not unlock, and now its locked up. then I called clarion. Turn the deck on with the screen out, then hold the power and play button to bring back up the password screen. Default is 0000 but if that does not work, enter 4356 and it will Unlock!
To reset from 7SAFE , press AS plus the ON button (at the same time) and leave SWITCHED ON ....UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself (usually an hour or two)
.It is displaying SAFE because wrong codes have been entered ....so it looks as though 1234 is NOT the correct code
If you have now been given the correct code then the code entry instructions depends on the MAKE + MODEL of your radio ....but as you have an AS button to press then try these instructions
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
If these instructions do not work on your radio , then find your MAKE+MODEL of radio on this free Code Entry Instructions website
If you require a code the radio will have to be removed from the car dashboard . Then please POST A NEW QUESTION quoting the MAKE + MODEL of your radio plus ALL the LETTERS and NUMBERS on any LABELS , BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING. ================================================ If your radio is a RENAULT/PHILIPS then here are the correct Code Entry Instructions
Philips Renault Code Entry
Turn on the radio and the display will show 'CODE'
Use the steering controls for code entry.
Press the [¬ ] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct first digit Press the [¬ ] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct second digit Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct third digit Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct fourth digit
If the correct code is now shown on screen, press and hold the [¬ ] button for up to 10 seconds to store the code
There is another solution to the radio being locked up you can try,,, If you look REALLY hard under the volume knob of your radio on the front there is a VERY small reset button. This worked for me last time, if this doesnt work then try calling them. If there originally was NO code number entered than this will work. Good luck, let me know how it turns out.
- WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR RADIO CODE, TRY THIS: I JUST TRIED THIS ON MY 520 IN A HOLDEN VECTRA (1999) AND IT WORKS:
- HOLD DOWN THE 'AS' BUTTON UNTIL YOU HEAR A BEEP, THEN YOU GET THE FOLLOWING DISPLAY:
10 - - - -
- PRESS BUTTON NUMBER 1 UNTIL YOU GET THE FIRST DIGIT IN YOUR CODE
- PRESS BUTTON NUMBER 2 UNTIL YOU GET THE SECOND DIGIT IN YOUR CODE
- PRESS BUTTON NUMBER 3 UNTIL YOU GET THE THIRD DIGIT IN YOUR CODE
- PRESS BUTTON NUMBER 4 UNTIL YOU GET THE FOURTH DIGIT IN YOUR CODE
- HOLD DOWN THE 'AS' BUTTON UNTIL THE STEREO TURNS ON.

Press & hold the 2 & 3 buttons @ the same time for about 10 seconds; a 2 or 3 digit code will appear, write this # down,press & hold the am/fm button for about 10 seconds: another code will appear, write this # down, then call 1-800-537-5140 and enter 202108 followed by the * key, then enter the #'s that you wrote down from your radio followed by the * key. The call will give you a 3 or 4 digit override code. Write this code # down so you have it if you ever need it again. Enter this # into your radio following the instructions in your owners manual. If you get an override code that starts with 0, you drop the 0 when entering the code into your radio. If you don't have an owners manual, try this, press & hold the hour button until the first 2 digits of your code come up, then press & hold the minute button until the last 2 digits show. Then press the am/fm button. This should reset your stereo. if nothing happens you should leave your car running for 1 hour.
