Lost Radio Code - post your request here

I have a CR-220, when I held down the TP button for 10 seconds and 'scrolled' through the options, Becker 1 came up as Loren said, but when I scrolled to the serial number portion it just said, 'seri'. It's a 4362. It also said '24/99' and a reset option...please help...how do I find the ser number?

Try the procedure again. If that fails then you will likely need to pull the radio out to read the serial number tag.

Thanks Loren...I tried a few times and the serial number is a no-go. I even put a little pressure on the face plate and tried because sometimes I don't get a good "seat"...still no joy.

I did, however, find a manual, written by the previous owner, "code: 4678". I tried to enter this 3 times and locked the unit out...now I'm waiting for it to unlock again. It didn't say it was for the radio, but I'm not sure what else it could've been for.

I'm physically unable to pull the unit out of the dash myself due an injury, but if I can't resolve via other means, I may have to resort to the local Stealer.

So, my questions are, should I try maybe incrementing the last two digits of the above number as I've seen in other posts?

Are there any other things to try when the radio doesn't take the code, assuming that 4678 is the correct code?

Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate it!

Last resort. Try taking the faceplate off and cleaning the contacts with electrical contact cleaner or an eraser. Then try again.

Ok, Loren...I found the code...the REAL code. I actually found the radio code card and the code was totally different than the one I posted earlier...see what happens when I assume? Anyway, radio is working...thanks for your help.

I think I have the PCM system... does that mean it won't work for me?

      My CR-220 plays the FM & AM & Cassette, doesn't play the 6 Pack CDs. Faceplate does not display, all presets work, and equalizer.  Is the problem in the face plate or radio?  Will getting another faceplate work with this radio?  Will it change the radio code.
