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 ) .
 
If not then POST A NEW  QUESTION
 
quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING
 
Also quote the MAKE of CAR
 
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

How to Unlock a Chevy Radio Step 1: Start the vehicle and turn on the radio.
Step 2: Press and hold preset numbers 2 and 3 until a three digit code appears on the radio display. Write this code down.
Step 3: Press the AM/FM button. Your radio will display a second three digit code. Write the second code down. You will now have a six digit code.
Step 4: Call the Chevy Radio Code phone line at 1-800-537-5140.
Step 4: Enter 106010 followed by the # key to direct you to the radio code retrieval system.
Step 5: Enter the six digit code you retrieved in steps 2 and 3 followed by the * key. They must be in order. You will be given a four digit radio code. Write down the radio code.
Step 6: Start your vehicle and turn on the radio. Using the Minute and Hour buttons, enter in the four digit radio code to your stereo system. Press the AM/FM button to unlock your stereo.
How to Unlock a GM Radio Step 1: Start the vehicle and turn on the radio. The radio will display "LOC" indicating the Theftlock system is activated.
Step 2: Press and hold preset buttons 1 and 4 for ten seconds. (If you don't have a fourth preset button, press and hold presets 2 and 3.) The radio will display a three digit number. Write this number down.
Step 3: Press the AM/FM button. Your radio will display a second three digit code. Write the second code down. You will now have a six digit code.
Step 4: Contact your local GM Dealer and give them the six digit code. They will give you a four digit radio code.
Many dealers will give you your radio code for free, while others may charge a small fee. If your dealer is charging a larger fee, consider calling another dealer or doing a Google search for sites offering GMC Radio codes. They usually charge a small (around $10) fee.
Step 5: Start your vehicle and turn on the radio. Press the Hour button on the radio until the first two number of the code appear. Next, press the Minute button until the last two numbers of the code are displayed. Once all four digits appear, press the AM/FM button to unlock your stereo. The display will read "SEC" indicating you have successfully unlocked your radio and it is fully operational.
If radio display reads "INOP" while the vehicle is on, too many incorrect radio codes have been entered. To remove "INOP" from your display and unlock your radio, you must leave the key in the On position for one hour. Once you've retrieved your radio unlock code, write it down for future use. Your radio code will not change and having it handy will save from going from the radio code retrieval process again.

I need a 4 digit security code for a DC283 Philips car stereo. Photo attached with serial numbers.


Nobody can give you one. That's a unique number for your stereo. The stereo has become locked, much like a phone will lock and require a code to unlock it. Nobody here will know that code.
The only hope you have is if the code is either four zeros (0000) or (1234) Good luck. Multiple wrong entries may lock the stereo permanently.

2000 GMC Safari, lost power to the vehicle. The radio did disply 'loc' and now displays 'InOP'. Please Help


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If you fail to enter the correct code eight (8) times, the radio goes into INOP mode. You have to wait an hour with the ignition on before the radio returns to LOC mode (go for a long drive somewhere).

After that the the radio will go to LOC mode, then follow this procedure to unlock it—

To unlock the car radio - Have a pen and paper ready. Push and hold stereo preset buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously for several seconds. Three digits will appear in the display "XXX", write them down. Push the AM/FM button, three more digits will appear in display "YYY", write them down.

Press 1 then # (pound). You’ll hear “Invalid Code, try again”

Press 139010 then # (pound). You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by * (start)

Enter the six didgit number obtained from above procedure.

Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice

Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the $ digit code that you have heard.

Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to SEC. Your radio is now “un-locked” and usable. The Theft-Deterrent feature is STILL active! If you want to disable it, use the instruction in Owner’s manual.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

My Theft Lock is stuck on and now it is in InOP stage


I suffered the same problem. Turn your ignition key to the ON position for 1 hour. This will reset the double lock feature on the radio to prevent theft. Once you leave your ignition key on for 1 hour, turn the key to the off position. Remove the key. Then turn the ignition key back to the ON position. You should then see "LOC" instead of "InOp". Then try the steps to enter your code again. Three incorrect tries will enable the double lock feature again, and you will have to repeat these steps to reset it.

I need help to unlock a radio in a 1997 Chevy Cavalier??


InOp means inoperable. There is a 4 digit code that you have to put in on the radio. I don't know if they are all the same code or not, but mine is 0642. read the directions in your car book. If you don't have one let me know and I can scrape mine up. Basically, though any time your battery is diconnected you will have to unlock the radio.
