Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, have you tried using a pair of headphones?

It uses that old headphone jack and I've thrown out all the headphones that I used to have... :-(
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
Trying with a headphone would actually be a test. There is a speaker cutoff switch inside the headphone jack:
• if it doesn't work even with known to be good headphones, then it would be an internal hardware issue;
• if it works with the headphones but not with the connected speakers; then the cutoff switch may need a bit of cleaning.
Either way, are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multimeter and even a soldering iron?
