    red light in headphone jack
    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.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
