Turn on the ignition, turn the radio off fully. (by preeing the volume wheel knob) press AS or the button that turns it to CD mode (should have circle on button)keep it pressed and turn radio on. wait for a beep then it should be somthing like:

10----------- (10 being the number of tries left)
use buttons 1,2,3 & 4 to input your code. press the button more than once for it to rise higher.

Hope this helped.
BTW i got the same problem with my dads astra. but i dont even know the code :(

Please check your manual that came along with the car as the codes are written in by the dealer.
if not check with your Opel service quoting your number for the code.
Since the battery was removed it has gone to this safe mode.

Radio code Vauxhall Philips CCR600 post year 2000

Unfortunately this CCR600 code will only be available from your Main Vauxhall dealer or by using a Radio decoding Service

It will not be available for free from anywhere on the Internet

You must contact the car manufacturer yourself and give them serial number and they will help you out. Only you can do this because they check to see if you are actual owner

Radio code wanted car 400 stereo; serial no is GM040033350051.

This Serial Number is not in the available Philips database.

So this code will only be available from your Main Dealer or a Radio decoding Service

Phillips ccr600 radio code is missing

First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)
To see if your code is available here  for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
Otherwise try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive
