Hello, You will probably need to dissasemble your laptop and check both the jack output and the speaker wires. You noticed that when you insert a headphone the internal speakers are muted automatically. This is due to a mechanical contact in the audio output jack. Therefore the jack itself needs to be checked (replaced eventually). If that's not the problem the wires to the speakers may not make a perfect electrical contact. DOn't worry about a more severe hardware fault. If the internal audio amplifier, on wich the speakers are connected, was broken then you woundn't have sound on the headphones either. So in the final the problem is dissasembling the laptop. If you aren't confortable with this, please don't try because a laptop is a fairly complicated device and it's dissasembly can prove difficult even for experienced people. Every laptop model has it's own mechanical make-up so therefore is hard to know them all. If you think you can do this you may contact me on the chat because the process will be complicated and I will need a large amount of feedback from you as the things go by. Otherwise, a service center could do that for you. It shouldn't be an expensive repair, and they should offer warranty for this repair in case you have problems in the future. Sorry for I'm not able to help you further on this way.

Yes it is possible to replace the connector itself. It is a bit costly, but much less than a new motherboard or new laptop. It is not something that is easily done, as it does requiring soldering on the board, which if you are not familiar with this, it is not something to attempt, as you can short out the board. There is a company out of Ohio that I would recommend you contact, their phone number is 513.874.3306. You can also email them at services@LaptopOnCall.com. They also offer a diagnostics special through eBay by clicking this link
Hopefully this will help you out.

SOURCE: Dell Audio Out cable
Only on a few conditions.
1) either your laptop has HDMI or other premium sound output (coax, optical)
2) you can use USB sound cards (or perhaps PCMCIA/Expresscard) which may output better quality sound

I think you are on the right track, if the headphone jack is worn and shorting out itll kill the speakers because it thinks headphones are plgged in, ebay would be a good start for parts, maybe even call toshiba and speak to their tech support.
