    Alright so heres what has happened. i received a mac book pro with the headphones broke off inside....i tried multiple ways of getting it out finally i went from the inside and got it out but when the jack came out a piece of glass came with it....(optical sensor i think) now i still have no sound....so now i really need to know is there anyway to get this thing to play sound through the internal speakers?

    Posting a THIRD time isn't going to help... You already have your answer.

    Take it to apple care and have them replace the logic board, it's only $700.

    I agree with the above posts. My recollection is that the audio jack is part of the logic board of the computer. I don't think that it is a separate, individual repair. I think that the entire logic board will need replacement, which is quite expensive. The quote above of $700 is quite inexpensive- I have seen quotes from the Apple store in excess of 1k.

    BTW, how did your friend break off the headphone jack inside of the laptop?
