For some reason my laptop has suddenly lost sound on it's speakers but still works on headphones. I've checked all setting and they show everything is working ok so am at a loss as to what the problem is.

possible headphone socket stuck in headphone position, try plugging unplugging headphones a few times.

In Playback devices check that speakers reset back to default. Sometimes this doesn't happen after removing headphones.

Had another fiddle with the headphone socket and now got sound from the speakers. Thanks for your help.

Possible cause: When the Headphone Jack is inserted, it causes a switch to cut the Speakers out. That Switch may have stuck. Your fiddling with the Jack may have released this switch.
