SOURCE: display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode

This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.

SOURCE: safe mode on car radio cannot enter code

Hopefully the code is correct. Radios will go in "safe" mode when a code is inputed incorrectly several times. Keep all power seperate for at least 30 mins and try again. Otherwise there might be a precode code of sorts, Id call dealer.

SOURCE: radio in safe mode on

Look in your owner's packet. You should have a supplemental stereo manual that will explain the way to enter the code. There should be a card in there with a four-digit code on it. If that isn't in there, you'll have to contact the dealer. Take in your title and registration, and they can look up the code based on the VIN of the vehicle. They'll show you how to do the code entry as well. Beware that it'll cost up to an hour's labor for this though so make sure they write down the code for you in case you lose battery power at some point or have to remove the stereo.

SOURCE: re setting the radio on my VW Golf

heres what u do , switch radio on , safe appears in radio display , followed by 1000 approximately 3 seconds later , input the security code found on the radio card using the station preset buttons on the radio , Button 1 corresponds to the first number in the security code , 2 is the second and so on . press the applicable button repeatedly until the desired number appears in the display , ( press button 1 three times if the first number is 3 ), when the entire code has been input and appears on the display , press the right side of the seek button for longer than 2 seconds until an audible signal is heard , ,,, if you do not get this procedure correct , in 2 attempts , the radio will lock up for 1 hour before you can try again .. if this happens , leave the radio on for minimum 1 hour without touching it , after that time you may try again ..

SOURCE: safe mode on Grundig 200 car radio, do not know where to find serial number.

Grundig 200 car radio can decode in the next way:

First step: Switch off the radio and the ignition as well.
Second step: Push the AS button and keep it pushed, at the same time turn on the ignition.

After this you will hear a beep sound. Now you can release the AS button.

Now you can enter the code in the next way: The first number can be set with the button ''1'', the second number of your code can be set with button ''2'' and so on. By pushing the ''1'',''2'',3'',''4'' buttons the value indicated in the screen will be increased by one. So if the first number of your code is 5 then you have to push the button ''1'' 5 times.

if this doesnt work then it will be cheaper to buy a new car radio contact me and let me no how you get on :)

Oh and the serial number is either engraved on the side of the unit or an actual sticker which is in the format you describe. You'll need to remove the unit from the dashboard to be able to get access to this.

Landrover cassette display appear "SAFE" This cassette model is XQE500550.How can fix safe mode.


If you have the correct radio code for the unit, just wait about an hour with the power on in the radio. The screen will eventually display (code) or (enter code) follow the directions in your radio manual to enter the code and the radio will be operational again. The safe mode is on because either the radio fuse blew, the battery was too low on charge or the radio was momentarilly disconnected from it's power source. Most common is low battery voltage. Charge your vehicle battery, locate the radio code, wait till radio displays CODE and enter the code an have happy tunes again.
