Could you boot the MacBook from an external source to verify if the problem is hardware or software issue ? Check the headphones port with a flashlight. What is the system preferences -> sound panel -> output status ? Also, repairing permissions can sometimes fix a sound problem.

Two possibilities come to mind. 1. The speaker connection to the logic board is faulty or 2. the headphone jack has a problem and is not connecting the speakers when you remove the headphones. You can try looking at the jack without removing the top cover but I suspect you will need to take it apart. Ralph

Could be a broken tip on the audio jack. +vote for the good "late" answer

With a broken tip inside the sound port the OP would have no heaphones sound and he says that << sound plays ok through headphones>>.
