I got the speaker working again after the issue where you remove the headset and it wasn't working anymore. Take a needle and a flashlight. use the flashlight and you whould see some metal parts down the headphone hole. use the needle and move them until you can hear with the speaker again. I'm sooo happy that i'm a genius !

Sounds like a mechanical issue that hp should fix under warranty. It would be annoying to have to perform surgery every time you want to remove the headphones.
Also, if my inderstanding of how these jacks work is correct, it's possible that rapidly plugging and unplugging the headphones could get the audio to go back to the internal speaker.
I would suggest getting hp to permanently fix it.

It could be a speaker issue. Try using you phone on speaker phone, or ear buds with with built in MIC or blue tooth headset. If it works with these options then its an issue with the speaker. If it doesnt work even with other options then its a more serious issue
I just dealt with one of these last month, its a ten minute fix if you have a soldering iron. The wire gets strained inside, they didn't allow enough slack in the wire for the movement of the earpieces. A quick resolder of the broken connection and a dab of hot glue to keep it from moving was all it took. Cost of repair was zero.
Same issue showed up for me today very randomly...
HD comes on and off for no reason and sound cuts in and out. This fix worked for me:
1.Disconnect the left speaker from the sub woofer. 2.Take the 4 screws out on the bottom of the left speaker. (They are under the rubber matting you can just poke holes through it) 3. Remove the bottom plastic assembly from the speaker 4. Cut the 4 wires to the headset chip. Careful not to cut any others to the speakers themselves! 5. Unscrew and remove headset plug chip 6. Reassemble and plug left speaker back into sub woofer.
i encountered this problem after i started using a bluetooth headset. when the headset is not in use (not turned on, not even with me), sometimes there is no sound from the speaker, and the other party cannot hear me. meanwhile, the call timer is clicking away indicating the call connected. it seemed there was some issue in the bluetooth stack, and the phone thought it should be communicating with the BT device rather than it's onboard speaker/mic. to resolve, i disconnect the call, go to the main screen; in the bottom right corner, use the bluetooth manager icon to turn BT On then Off again. this resets the phone's speaker/mic usage, and calls can be made like normal. i hope this helps you.
