    MacBook Pro Early 2008. Issue: red light on audio-in jack when you remove the headphones so no sound is coming out from the built-in speakers. I have Googled almost the whole night on NYE: tried toothpicks, matchsticks, ballpen ink tubes and etc but still the same. Unplugged/replugged headphones still no dice.

    What else is there to do aside from just being mad the whole year? :slanted:

    I think the red light you see is the digital out.

    I used a toothpick to gently press on the inside of the headphone jack.

    I'm having this problem now. At which part did you aim? center? sides?

    The headphone out is also the digital line out.

    If I remember it right, this is a bug that was solved by a software update. It supposedly happens when you ran bootcamp.

    I think it should be. Bring it to an Apple service center. :)
