I found three solutions somewhere, hope one works for you!
Good luck! Just tell me which worked.
I am wish to import a S40 too, can you give me the exporter's name and site?
. It went like this, turn radio on, when “code” is displayed push and hold “6” while pushing “power & volume” knobs at the same time. Let radio turn off while continuing to hold “6”. Turn radio back on by pushing both “power & volume” knobs at the same time. It worked on 98 V90.
#2 (JAPAN IMPORT)
-I emailed 2 Volvo Dealers and both replied 6666 is the code for all used Volvo imports from Japan, so I switched the ignition key to pos I for over 2.5 hours and "CODE" appeared, then pushed button 6 four times and the Radio swiched On. Problem solved.
-we altered the client access code input protocol by “rebooting” the stereo (turning it off and on using the combined volume/power input) and, at the same time, holding down the “stereo preset 6” button. The stereo then transitioned into the authenticated mode, allowing clients to listen to NPR without proving identity.

Volvo codes are usually readily available for free from your Volvo dealer providing you can quote the VIN and Radio Serial Number

This is a common issue particularly with vehicles that have had some neglect to the oil change routine. The VVT solenoid on the top of the valve cover gets clogged with thickened or sludged oil.
Replace the VVT solenoid and gasket with a new unit and clear the codes.

SOURCE: Radio code for volvo s40
If the display says "Off" the radio is locked from incorrect code input.
You need to leave the key in the accessory position with the radio on (display reads 'Off') for about two hours.
After that it should ask for he code again. You have three tries before it locks again.
Some radios are different, but typically you use the knob to adjust the numbers, push the knob in to move to the next number
