My internal speakers on my macbook pro are no longer working. We had plugged headphones in yesterday to watch a show online. We left the headphones plugged in & the computer went into sleep mode. After starting it back up & removing the headphones, I am unable to get any sound to come out of the internal speakers. It won't allow me to adjust the sound up or down. If I go into the system preferences, it says there is not output device available. If I plug the headphones back in, the sound works fine. I have tried rebooting & shutting it down but no fixes. It does chime normally upon restart. It is almost like something is blocking the port but I have no idea what it would be. There is also a red light shining out of the audio jack.
I searched this online and found several people suggesting to use a paperclip or toothpick in the output to "unstick" a switch but I don't see anything in there.
Has anyone else come across a solution for this?
