Question about 2006 Volvo S40
I have just purchased a used 2006 s40 and after about 4 weeks, the cd's will stop playing , you can't eject them or anything. Once the car is cut off and you crank it back up you can then eject , but it will do it again.. Also at the same time this was happening the air will come out hot and times, and then after about 15 or 20 minutes it will get cold again, or you can turn off the air and turn back on in 5 mins. or so and it will be cold again. Wondering if it could be a problem with something electrical in the console part since they are all connected .
Does your ambient temperature gauge in the instrument cluster read an odd temperature at times?
It could be possible that when someone removed the dash trim just below the steering wheel...they didn't put the cabin air temperature sensor back in the right place and is reading the temperature out of the vent and adjusting accordingly.
As for your radio concern...that's a new one for me. Never heard of that problem before. Could be an internal fault in the CD player itself. I've heard of the CDs getting jammed in, but not on occassion. Its an easy fix though so I'd suggest on bringing it in and getting it looked at. Specially if it's still under warranty.

I am a volvo s40 owner myself.
Try to eject all of the CDs at once. To do so keep the eject button pressed for a few seconds. this will eject the CDs one by one.
The temperature of the air conditioner is probably changing because of the outside temperature change. eg if the temperature outside is 35C and you set the temp inside at 25C it will come out cold air. if the temperature outside drops to 30C the air will come out hotter. you will notice that between summer and winter. the same temperature set will give either cold or hot depending on the weather.
in winter if you set it at 25C it will be very hot. In summer it will be cold.
