Hi there,
I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question.

There is a tiny microswitch inside the headphone jack socket which detects when headphones are plugged in, and it automatically mutes the audio output.

If the tiny switch gets stuck, then the system will think that headphones are still plugged in when they are not.
To fix this, it may be possible to release the switch by plugging and unplugging the headphone jack several times; or by gently releasing the switch using a fine needle or toothpick.
