Question about Televison & Video
The most likely cause of this is the socket the headphones plug into is damaged.
When you insert the jack into the socket it engages a leaf part of the switch which takes the built in speakers out of the loop.
What happens if you are not real careful plugging or unplugging the headphones the socket they connect with can get damaged.
Two ways to know which it is.
I use a plastic wand like those on spray cans of oil etc and insert it in the socket and move it around; it the sound returns to the speakers even for a moment----the socket is damaged.
The second way would be to open the set and connect the speakers with the socket disconnected.
The fact that you have sound from headphones means the audio circuit in the set is ok.
The audio for both speakers is routed to the socket first and then from there it connects to the speakers.
Please let me know if you need more help. I am in California and usually here from noon to about 8 pm each day.
