Hi,

For some time some time now since around the Sierra update my camera has stopped working. The status light flashes and the input form the camera is just black. I don't really know what could have happened. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this and if so what caused it?

All the best,
Dan

Assuming you are not installing the sierra BETA, you have a failed install. reinstall the OS and you should be back in business. Also try a PRAM and SMC reset to be safe. But you will likely need to reinstall the OS

Depending on the model/year, could also be an I/O board. Relatively inexpensive to fix. To see if that's it, check About This Mac, System Report, and see if it shows a Camera. If none seen, this board could be the problem.
