    This issue still hasn't been resolved so I am still without sound. When I boot up my Macbook I still get sound out of the speakers so I know they can still function. Is it possible to just bypass the headphone jack so I can at least get sound out of the internal speakers?

    I only breezed over you previous thread comments however I didn't notice if anyone said to bring it to your closest Apple store. Do you have an AppleCare Protection Plan? If so, definitely bring it to the store and I'm sure they will take care of it within minutes. If you don't have the plan, I would bring it there anyway, they probably have a simple procedure for getting the piece out. Even if they charge you, it shouldn't be too much and I'm sure it'll be worth it.

    This could be a good time for you to go to the Apple Suggestion page and suggest a MagSafe headphone adapater. :rolleyes:

    Let us know how it goes.

    It wouldn't get sound out of your internal speakers, but you could always just buy a pair of USB headphones to use until you get the broken headphone jack out of your Macbook.

    System Preference > Sound > Input

    Select Internal Speakers/Built-in Output

    But you'll still need to remove the plug from the jack. Try some super glue and toothpick, if that doesn't help, bring it to Apple Store. Apparently nobody here knows about the System Preference. :p
