Hello
I bought a used MacBook 5.2
There is no sound in the loudspeakers. Headphones are ok.
The think that is connected to a digital device for sound output. There are red light inside the connector.
I've tried these two things:

How to Disable the Digital Audio Out in a MacBook Pro | eHow

I also reinstalled OX S on a blank hard drive.

Could it be a bug in the plug inside the MacBook?

Thanks in advance

I have used a toothpick to gently probe inside the headphone jack and turned it off.

If you break something in there - not my fault.

re-titled your thread since there are no "errors"

You can google that title and find a lot of hits for that period Mac.
It happened on occasion.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
