SOURCE: Speakers do not work
yes thats the fact when you plug a headphone into any speakers the head phone will be the only one to function the speaker stops thta the circuit technically which will break the connection of power to speaker if you plug head phone

yes you're right. It's a input not a output jack. I discovered it some time ago. The problem is the symbol on it seems like an headphone...

Unplug your headphones if you have not already.
Open device manager. You can do this by right clicking on your "My Computer" icon on your desktop and then selecting properties at the bottom of the menu that comes up, or by going to Start>Settings>Control Panel, and then opening the "System" icon.
Once the system properties tab is open, left click on the hardware tab. Now left click the Device Manager button.
On the device manager window, look for an entry that says "Sound, video and game controllers". Left click the + box directly to the left of this line. It will open up any devices you have in this category. Within this list, your sound card device should be listed. It may say something like "SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio" or something similar.
Right click this device and left click uninstall. It will prompt you if you are sure you want to do this, tell it yes/ok and the driver will be uninstalled at this point, leaving ou with the device manager open still but without your sound driver listed.
Now, close all of your open windows saving any work you may have open, and reboot the PC. Upon reboot, the system will automatically reinstall your sound card driver. It may prompt you if you want to do this, just tell it yes/ok as you need to, to continue installing this driver.
Once this is complete, your sound should be working normally again.

I took a safety pin and put it in the notch inside the headphone jack input. notch is located at 12 o'clock about 1/8th inch in, (this is an important step, other steps are no good until red light is off) the red light went off (Be patient this step may take time) still no sound, I then went to Audio MIDI setup (Should be located in Applications/Utilities), go to Audio in menu bar (at very top of computer screen) and selected 'open Aggregate Device Editor,' clicked on the + to add a device I then had a few options show up in the lower [Structure] portion I clicked on all the 'Use' boxes and the built-in output bubble selected done. I then Selected Configure Speakers in Audio MIDI setup and I can test my left and right speakers individually, they put out a fuzzy test sound, pressed done when finished. They still didn't work so I set Default out put to the Aggregate Device I created, then turned on Itunes and it was working fine I just could not control the volume from the F3, F4, & F5 buttons so I went to sound in system preferences and made sure the built-in Output option was selected. I was then able to control the volume. The red light in headphone jack input may come back on if anything is inserted inside, just mess around with the notches inside till it goes off. Hope it works as well as it did for me. Good luck and please feel free to quote me and share this solution with others.

SOURCE: no sound through the headphones
The way the headphone jack works is:
plug your headphones in and then mute the television using the remote.
While the TV is muted you can still use the volume up and down controls to adjust the volume through the headphones. I find that having the volume at 60-75% is more than loud enough on the headphones.
Just be careful when you unplug the headphones and take the TV off of mute, if your volume levels are still turned up you will be in for a jolt :)
