Some stereo system have the ability to switch off the speakers when playing via headphones. In others the headphone socket itself does the switching. However headphone sockets can become faulty and when the headphone plug is removed it doesn't restore sound to the speakers. It's very easy to fix this, with a check that the contacts are not bent out of place. Or you can rewire a new headphone socket, making a note of the wire connections before you replace it.
Sometimes it is quite difficult to get the speaker cable to make a good contact with the speaker sockets. You should check that they are making contact.
To test any loudspeaker just connect a 1.5 battery for a short time across the disconnected speaker. If working the speaker will pop!
As the sound is going to the headphones the amp seems to be OK and one of the above options should correct the problem.
Some amps have a button which you press to mute the speakers when the headphones are plugged in. Sometimes marked "Speakers on off". If it hasn't then a new headphone socket would not be expensive to fit. As long as the amp producers sound I don't see any future problems. The previous owner may have used the headphone socket a lot, and simply wore it out!
