Hello my name is ***** ***** I am a Yamaha service technician. Here is the problem. The muting is done by a switch in the headphone jack. When you plug in the headphones it activates the switch and mutes the speakers. The only way to bypass this is to open the unit up and bypass that switch with a jumper wire.
