I recently had a repair shop work on my Macbook (problems with the fans/overheating) and ever since I got my computer back, I've noticed that when I plug my headohones in, the audio shuts off completely and any music or video I'm watching will freeze. As soon as I unplug the headphones, the sound will work and the video will resume.

No, the MBP's fan should not be a loud sound.
The fans on my regular MacBooks do make an audible sound, but it's a low 'white noise' king of thing that I don't really notice unless there is no other noise in the room, or if I make myself aware of it.
You can try blowing compressed air into the vents at the back of the laptops bottom piece. That sometimes helps by getting rid of excess dust in the fan blades & vents.
If it doesn't help, you might need to take the MacBook to an Apple Store or other Apple certified repair shop.
Hope this helps you!
If the new shop was repairing it with respect to the problem of you having no backlight, take it back to them and show them that it is not working and demand that they repair it correctly. Failing that you should really take it to a mac authorised repair shop i.e. an apple store to get it repaired.
This is a VERY common problem with all types of MacBooks. However, it is also VERY easy to fix this problem. What you'll need: A can of compressed air ( for dusting off computers and electrical components).
Step 1: Insert the end of the straw (the end the air comes out of) into your earphone jack (the audio port that the red light is coming out of). No need to jam it in there. Just insert it about 1/4 inch.
Step 2: Spray bursts of air into the port. This will NOT harm the MacBook. I won a MacBook repair business and we use this technique frequently. While you apply the air, try the volume button over and over. Sometimes you have to wait a couple of seconds after you apply the air. The air pressure corrects the switch inside that usually gets out of whack after using headphones or external speakers. The volume problem has even happened to my personal MacBooks.

I'm thinking it could be a feedback loop. Maybe for some reason when you plug in the headphones it does not turn off the speakers but ramps up the mircophone. Clean you your jack to make sure it detects the headphone plug right and turns off the speakers. If that doesn't help you may have a logic board issue. If you want to replace it yourself, Here is an Macbook Repair Guide that shows how to open a Macbook. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Macbook Repair.
Hi, this can come form a lot of things, harware or software related.
Software related: The easiest solution would be to backup your data and do a "clean install".
hardware related: the easiest solution is to test your hard drive using the disk utility, and repair it if needed. If you have added extra memory, take it out to be sure that they are not the cause.
My daughter had the same problem. What has probably happened is that the chip that is inside the headphone outlet has become stuck and your macbook thinks the headphones are always plugged-in. There are several suggestions that we tried but decided to send her macbook back to Apple for a new chip. This is a KNOWN problem. For more detailed info and suggestions try http://www.macriot.com/article.php/20080718032528619. Good luck!
I have a solution for you all. This fixed the problem for me. First, make sure you are all running 10.5.5. If you are not, run software update from the Apple Menu. If you are set there, go to Applications --> Utilities --> Disk Utility --> Make sure your Hard Drive is selected on the left hand panel --> MAKE SURE the First Aid tab is selected! --> Click Repair Disk Permissions. This may take a while, FYI. As soon as Disk Permissions have been repaired, restart your computer right away. That fixed the problem at my end. Good luck everyone!
