iMac internal speakers disappeared

I was using external speakers via headphone jack. When I unplugged the externals, I don't get the built in speakers option in sound prefs.
Had Boom2 but AppZapped it, but it still appears in Sound prefs.

I don’t know if this is still a rare possibility or not, but I had an old white MacBook years ago that did this. Back then, there was one of the prongs in the jack that would get stuck and the computer would think there was still a plug in it. Fiddling around with a toothpick got it to pop back out and that fixed the problem.

Poked a toothpick into the headphone jack and it's fixed.
