MacBook Pro Webcam not working...
I haven't used my built-in web cam in months now and out of sheer bordem decided to play around with Photo Booth, to my surprise nothing was showing up. It's just a blank screen.
The little green light by the lens goes on.... but nothing comes up.
Anyone run into this?

The built in iSight doesn't have a lens cap.
I saw this issue on an iMac once and a SMC reset fixed it.
I think its called SMC, or perhaps SMU.

Open up QuickTime and record a movie, it should load the camera. If it doesn't open up there either then I am stumped.
Here is a link to the same problem on another forum:
The result was that it he had to replace the logic board and the upper bezel (the whole camera piece).

This fixed my Isight for my Macbook Pro
1. Turn off your Macbook pro
2. Unplug your charger
3. Hold the power key for five seconds and release
4. Plug your computer in again
5. Turn your computer back on.
My camera wasn't working, but the green light was on. So I looked all over different forums for a solution, and I couldn't find one any where. This came from the Apple website. I think it resets the system management controller(SMC). I don't really know anything about computers, but this instantly worked for me. I hope this helps some one
