Radio want play and shows waiting

(1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE)
in Claudville, VA on April 20, 2011
My friend gave me the 1990 Mercedes-Benz. When I cranked up the car the radio shows the word WAITING. I read the owners manual and didn't help.
Please Help Me.

someone tried to guess at the radio code and now the radio
thinks it has been stolen. you will need to keep power on
the radio for about an hour or more, until the radio says
the word code. then you can enter the CORRECT code. the best way to make sure your radio code is CORRECT is by
removing the radio and getting the code from your local MB
dealer based on the radio serial number, not from the cars'
vehicle ID number.
