    Every time I try to use my build in camera on my Macbook the green light that says its working comes on but the screen just shows up black. It just started working 2 days ago and Ive been using it on iChat but now when I try to use it it goes back to the black screen.

    This happens to me sometimes.
    What I do is I turn off the computer, take out the battery, hold down the power button for five seconds, then put the battery back in and turn it on.
    That keeps it working for a while, if you want it fixed permanently I advise going to a mac store and having them fix it.
