Default Radio Reset?

Can anyone please tell me how to reset the radio?
I had to replace the battery in my 05 Sorento, when the new battery was connected my radio asked for a code, I tried to turn the radio off but after a couple of goes it showed an error which wouldn't go away! I then read the manual (yeah, I should have done that first), and saw that I had three goes to input the correct code before requiring resetting. Grrr. I do have the code, but now I don't have the option to put it in!!

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I think you have to wait a preset amount of time before you can retry the code. Otherwise, disconnect the battery and see if gives the option to try code. Good luck.
