    hey guys i was on skype using my isight and then all of a sudden it stops working. green light goes off and im confused. i reboot a bunch of diff times and i still cant get it to even recognize that it has a camera attatched. i go to photobooth and it says "Make sure your digital video camera is properly attached and turned on. If you are using the camera with another application, close that application before trying to open Photo Booth again."
    i have read a few posts saying to bring it back to the apple store. i will this weekend when i get back to the city but i was wondering if they will fix it on the spot or will i have to wait for a replacement mbp? im going back to the city but i have school at stony so i was wondering if ill walk out of the apple store wiht my mbp. anyone else have this problem?

    Try doing a PRAM reset and see if that makes a difference or not.

    Go into your system profiler, and look under USB. The isight is supposed to be listed here. If it is not, then you have a problem. My isight on my macbook just went for the 2nd time in 1 1/2 years. I left it in the apple store for them to send it it. this time they will be replacing the logic board, unless of course they find something else wrong with it. I was kind of hoping they would swap it out with a new one. Take a look at system profiler.
