I had a similar problem with the VW 'Premium' stereo in my 1993 Passat. The
parts counter guy suggested leaving it powered on for two to three hours
(displaying 'SAFE'). At that time, press the appropriate buttons to start
entering code ('mode' and 'scan' simultaneously on the Passat). If it worked
you should now see '1000' in the display and can proceed to enter the
correct code.

It worked for me on the Passat. I'm not sure if the manufacturer of the 
Passat "Premium" stereo is the same as the Audi "delta" stereo, but it's
worth a shot!
