    It is quite possible that the contact that detects the headphone being plugged into the jack is either dirty, or broken. I had something similar happen to my MacBook Pro earlier in the year. I simply took a small Q-Tip, dipped it in alcohol, and wiped the port as clean as possible (don't use too much liquid on the Q-Tip though). I let it dry for a bit (Alcohol has no water in it but just to be safe), tested it again, and it worked fine.
