    The sound output in my Macbook Pro has been going in and out now for a number of months. And yesterday it finally got stuck on "Digital Output" meaning when I take out headphones from the jack, the internal speakers do not work. I am planning on taking it in and wanted to know, since I am still under warranty will Apple repair it, or give me a new one?

    possible loose connection on a relay somewhere. i doubt they'd give you a new comp over a trivial issue like a non-working audio connection which could be repaired quickly unless the problem goes back to a printed board chip. have it checked out.

    use a toothpick to fix the audio issues

    Hi, I had the same issue and the port had a small red light coming out of it. It is stuck in digital audio mode, and likely just needs to be cleaned. I stuck a tooth pick in there gently and a tiny bit of lint came out. It instantly worked as soon as I plugged and unplugged my headphones. It now recognizes that nothing is plugged in and the internal speakers work again!
