Have you tried to rerun NBI and then reboot your mini?

Does the speaker work?
If yes, it might hardware (the 3,5mm female jack) problem.

Temporary fix:
Use a usb headphone.

I had a problem with my headphone socket two days ago, for some reason the internal contact was loose and wasn't working. I didn't want to take the machine apart so I took it to a couple of repair guys who said that the socket would need replacing and it was quite a job. I searched the web and there was one guy who had a similar problem and suggested sticking a "Q-tip", (yup, ear cleaner), in there and twisting it. I'd tried with various other tools in there but no joy. The Q-tip worked!
