    MacBook Pro Speakers not working!
    My internal speakers on my MacBook Pro are randomly not working.
    The weird thing is that when I plug in my headphones into the audio jack, I hear everything fine.

    I have a 15" MBP that is the generation just before the newer unibody MacBook Pros.

    Any help?

    Are you saying when you plug in your headphones that you get sound from the speakers as well as the headphones? And, when unplugged, the speakers are randomly working? If so, the audio jack is not working right.

    If your machine is still under warranty or Apple care, you might want to make an appointment with the genius bar and have it checked out.

    Look into your headphone jack. Is there a red light showing that you can see?

    If the red light is on, it means the headphone jack is stuck in digital mode and will only allow sound thru the headphones. You can try to reset it by using a strong toothpick or the headphone male jack itself. Let us know.

    Just a thought the volume setting can be muted for both headphone and speakers seperately I assume you already tried the volume mute on off and volume up and if so did you look in System Preferences under sound under output and make sure its on internal speakers and not Soundflower 2ch/16 ch.
