I've heard of a similar problem which was caused by physical damage to 
the headphone socket. It wasn't programming which caused the problem, it 
was plugging the programming cable in which caused it. The audio goes 
through the headphone jack socket so the internal speaker can be muted 
when a plug is inserted. If the contact hasn't sprung back properly then 
the internal speaker will stay muted.
Does the RX light turn on when it receives a signal?

You could try plugging a speaker/headphones into the socket and see if 
you hear the audio through that. Although I believe it's a 2.5mm jack 
plug you'll need!
