jerry can you clip the speaker wires and temporary connect another speaker to see if it works?   that would either point or eliminate the speaker itself.  i did have a cold solder joint on a speaker once that i touched with a iron and it made contact.  if that dont work then one of the tech guys should know.   radio shack should have a replacement - got one there before.

Jerry,

I agree with Dixie.  The output amp circuit Is working since you can hear through headphones. If solder joints, speaker wires & speaker aren't the issue, then it!s most likely the headphone jack is bad, the wrong type or it's shorting against the the metal housing. If it's a plastic housing then the headphone jack may not be properly grounded. Whatever the cause, it should be a simple fix.

Dixie,

When you replace the the headphone jack, make sure you get a jack that matches your headphones - by that, I mean a mono jack for mono headphones or a stereo jack for stereo headphones. Also, be aware that some of the newer type headphones are not 8 ohms like the speaker is. The more modern headphones tend to be meant for iPods & MP3 players and seem to be 32 ohms or greater (thus the volume output would be effected). And some headphones are looking for a digital signal instead of analog - that may prevent satisfactory headphone performance, as well.
