comment Script to change Computername/hostname causing bizarre Terminal behavior
Great! Very pleased to be able to help. I've written an answer. BTW, I feel that @MorganR deserves some credit here too, but sadly I don't see a way to do that in the bounty system...

@smoooosher @MorganR One idea to check if a strange character is getting embedded into the variable value: try adding the line echo $compName | od -c to the script after the "loop through the CSV" section. (To experiment with what od does, try eg echo foo | od -c in Terminal...)

comment Macbook Pro Sound doesn't work after Yosemite update
Your second screenshot says "Digital Out". Is there a light shining inside your headphone port? In which case, the port is stuck in digital out mode (which I believe has no volume control).
