Hi,

Look at the headphone jack.

Is there a red light on in there?

If yes, take your headphones and plug them in and then gently move the plug around a little bit. Then remove and insert them several times and watch the Sound - Output preference and when you see it change to Internal speakers, it is fixed.

This has been happening a lot over the past couple of years and this is the best solution.

Let me know how you make out.
