The audio port out on my IMac 24 does not work with headphones, speakers or ear buds. What options do I have?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5), 24" mid 2007

    The main headphone jack on a Mac Pro 65lb tower is for a 3.5mm plug (not the 2.5mm used for many earbuds).


    The first thing to do is check in System preferences > Sound > Output ...


    ... and make sure the settings there are appropriate.


    Headphone jacks have a mechanical component, and as such they can be fussy. Sometimes it take inserting, wiggling, and removing the plug a few times to a dozen times to get it to work correctly, then hopefully it will continue to work with one insertion after that.
