You must have something open using the camera, like photobooth etc
If that doesn't help then a safe boot (hold down shift at boot). It has worked for me in the past.
Not necessarily, I had my camera on for about a week and nothing would stop it and nothing started it.
I have a new Penryn Macbook and today when I booted up the computer, the green camera light was on. I tried to restart the computer but it didn't help. How do I turn this thing off?
Try to press command+option+Esc all at the same time. This will lead you to a box called force quite. From there chose photo booth and click quit. If it doesn't appear, then click iTunes from the list in the force quit box. I did it this way and the camera went off.
Hello. if anyone can help me i need to know this. My idiot friend went on my computer and went on this website where i guess u can talk to people through the computer camera. and wen he left my house, he left the computer on. and so iv been using it and 3 days later i see that a tab is still open. when i open it its other people watching me through my computer. ITS BEEN ON FOR 3 DAYS!!! and i really dont know what my friend did, but i wanna turn the camera off. iv been looking at everybodys comments to how to turn it off, so say u go on that website again, even though ichat and photo booth are off, can they still be looking at u even though all the camera things are turned off. and how do u know if your camera is off. cuz i dont want my friend to go on that website again an wen i use my computer, other creeps will be watching me. so can someone please tell me what to do.
[doublepost=1468592269][/doublepost]Really simple solution. Stick some duct tape over the camera. Job done.When I was looking, I thought your bedroom could do with a tidy up - get all those under crackers up of the floor and into the basket for crying out loud. And the wallpaper on the wall behind your bed, get that changed as well dude...
You have to keep them pressed till you hear the "bong" 3 times otherwise it is useless!How Do You Turn Off The Camera?
Reset the PRAM. You do that by shutting down your computer. Then restart the computer while holding down the keys, "Option", "Command", "P" and "R" (you may need someone to assist you in doing this). Keep holding the keys down until the computer shuts itself off and then restarts. The light should go off immediately.
