Sterlings answer will work but not because of cleaning it out.

It means your digital audio out has switched on. You can insert a plastic toothpick in the hole and try and switch it off. The switch should be at the 3 o'clock position and go towards the 6 o'clock position. Some people also have had luck inserting their headphone jack and pulling out a few times. Another recent report was that inserting the headphone jack and turning it in the hole helped.

This has to do with the mac thinking there's an optical audio cable plugged in. I've had this problem many times with my macbook. I ended up fixing it by taking a toothpick and cleaning it out.
