Well 2 months and £2500 later iv finally got her back! Picked up from garage to find the radio is not working! It does light up but nothing else. Was told by the garage i will need to enter the code so i got this from bmw but it doesnt appear to be asking for the code as the set up procedure states in my original radio manual! Is there another way to input this code without having to be prompted? Any help welcome! Also doesnt help that my pixels are all over the place! lol Cheers

From what I remember when I had a factory unit, I don't think it prompts for the code.
Just enter the code as in the hand book and it springs to life.
Then remove it and put it in the bin:#)

From what I remember when you disconect the power to the radio has "code ----" on the screen or just "----" but the screen is never blank.

Correct, got mine back from the workshop on Monday and it showed ---- so I just entered the code and it came back to life.

do you have the standard radio?
Have you ever entered the code before?
I remember having one years ago (not BMW) that also, only went upto 6.
I'm wondering if yours has been swapped out.

All sorted! Just had to guess with the buttons as my pixels are knackered and couldnt actually see the code as i typed it in! Thanks for the help!
