    Any idea why my external speakers would stop working?
    This happened after I unplugged speakers from output
    and plugged in headphones. After done, when I plugged
    speakers back in it stopped working. Headphones no longer
    work either. Internal speakers still do, though.

    I went into preferences and sounds. The external speakers
    are no longer showing up. Built in output is the only option
    available. I unplugged everything and turned everything off.
    Plugged them back in and turned the mac back on. Nothing.

    Any ideas?

    Sounds to me like the jack input has packed in. :(

    In other words, it has recessed into the iMac?

    I take it if this is what happened there is no
    easy fix?
