Hi panarabica, yes I have experienced this. Different cause though as the interior of my car and boot had got damp. It used to seemingly lock up the radio code input. I kept trying occasionally and one day I accidentally left the radio on but codeless for about an hour, and lo and behold it went in. I have a dehumidifier in the car now, but if I have to disconnect the battery it still takes a few seconds to a minute to allow the code input. If I remember rightly if you put a wrong code in it still beeps and the stars become dashes on the display on a fully working system. I have also had my cd changer do a similar trick which cured itself by bringing the unit inside the house for a week.
My car is outside continuously, unfortunately so damp is always a problem for me given the nature of our vehicles.
