    bring it into the MAC store (repair shop) it will most likely be the logic board ( part of the mother board) if you are still under warranty it cost nothing, if not $891 for part, over $1000 installed. Don't try the tooth pick thing you can void your warranty.    or use external speakers......

    I am having the same problem.... It started when I put the headphones in and it works... but when I removed the headphone, my speakers are not working and the red light is on.  I took my MacBook to Apple Store 3 times and they don't see the problem.... so it seems like I am stuck with this situation.   Who else can solve this problem?

Most likely keyboard is dying! Try connecting an external USB keyboard and use the keys not working on the other keyboard. If they work then it means that you have a faulty keyboard.

sounds like the keyboard is failing check for debris under the keys use a can of compressed air, q-tips, and rubbing alcohol. If this doesn't fix the issue you will need to replace the top case (aka keyboard)

I'm thinkin' 2. This page <http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook-Unibody-Model-A1342/1239/3> talks about it having "two small tweeters beneath the keyboard, one below the caps lock key, and the other below the return key."
Good luck.

Problem with speakers, Mac laptop MacBook 13" white


Have you made sure that the sound options in system preferences are all set, and not muted? Open system preferences, choose sound, go to the output tab. Make sure it's not muted or something silly.

If that's not it, and you're mechanically inclined, you can try opening the mac case and see if the speakers are disconnected. Although, I doubt they are unplugged.

Sound settings are controlled in the System Preferences, have you checked there?
