    Hopefully one of these steps should solve the problem.

    1. System Preference > Sound > Output > Internal Speakers

        Make sure Mute is not enabled.


    2. Remove the headphone.


        If you see red light in the headphone port, plug the headphone

        in and out of the port 5 or 6 times to flip the microswitch inside.

        Sound output may be stuck in the digital mode.




    3. Reset PRAM.


    4. Reset SMC.


        Choose the method for:

        "Resetting SMC on portables with a battery you should not remove on your own".


    5. Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup


        Audio Devices window

        Side Bar

        Click the Built-in Output.


        Under Mute any of the boxes checked? If so uncheck it.


        Option click the speaker icon, if present and select Internal Speakers.
