- Press button " 1 " three times to display a " 3 " in the first column,
- Press button " 2 " four times to display a " 4 " in the second column,
- Press button " 3 " six times to display a " 6 " in the third column,
- Press button " 4 " twice to display a " 2 " in the fourth column.
By checking on the screen that the code "3462" is correctly displayed, press and hold "Scan" & "Mode" to enter the code into the system and your radio will operate again.
