    I have lost the code for this MG badged Philips radio. Full model No is 22 DC 741/60E and Prod No is FD 0996442008068.
    Can the code be derived from the serial no ?
    I have an elvis etc If I need to read an eprom but I will need an idiots guide of how to do this.
    Any help will be much appreciated

    Do I have to disassemble the unit to do this, I notice there are two cut outs in the case each with a pair of solder pads exposed. are these applicable??
    If I do have to open the radio is the eprom in a DIL socket or do I have to unsolder it to put it in the Elvis?
    Thanks

    Code Entry

    After switching on the set will display 'CODE'. Press the preset 1 key, the display will change to 0 .. .. .. Enter the code using the band up/down keys. Press preset 1 for the next code digit and repeat until all 4 have been entered and the set will switch on.

    Deactivating the Code

    Switch the set on while pressing the band UP key. 'CODE' will display. Enter the code as described above. The set will switch on and is now uncoded.

    Reactivating the Code

    Switch the set on while pressing the band DOWN key. 'CODE' will display and the set will operate.
