Good luck, frucyjuit, if you're still following this.
Well well, I was going nuts over this issue. I just replaced my iMac 17 with a new aluminum iMac 24 and moved the 17 to another room for my GF to use (her Winbox died) and couldn't get sound on it (circle with a bar). I'll try your paperclip trick, I had external speakers plugged-in the audio jack for 16 months, could be that this switch is stuck...
