Most coded radios have an escalation plan built-in.  That is, repeated
wrongly entered code will cause the radio to go into a wait mode.
You may need to leave the radio on for a hour or so before it will accept
the code.  This is the case with Blaupunkt and Alpine.  

Try leaving the car's ignition on and the radio on for an hour or so. (you
may consider connecting your car to a battery charger.  After a time you
should see a change in the display (it will ask for a code).
