After 3 or 4 attempts with incorrect codes, radios “seize” & won’t accept

I am a new owner of an XJS and am trying to figure out the code for the
radio. The Radio Model # is AJ8700 and Serial# B61024125, I had a shop look
it up and they gave me a code of 14333 but it did not work. Is this the
wrong code or am I not doing something right in punching it in.
Thanks for the help.
