    Is there a red light emanating from your headphone jack? Does it work with external speakers or headphones plugged in?

    If so, the microswitch that's inside the jack has become stuck. Sometimes you can free it up; sometimes an Apple Genius can free it up.

    Otherwise, it means a new logic board to fix it. Had the same thing happen to me. I had Apple Care though, so they fixed it for free (and without the AC, it would have been as much as a new Macbook.)

    It luckily fixed itself for now...I inserted a pair of headphones into the jack, noticed the red light going off...put them in one more time and seemed to free up volume control...I'm scared apple care and I'm sure I haven't seen the end of this=/
