Haven't use photo booth much, but now I notice when i start the app, it just only shows black screen, while the green light is on. MBP 2011 low end 15'. Any suggestion?

I was thinking about taking to apple too, but when i start facetime the camera works fine. Maybe something wrong with the photo booth.

Is it dark out? :D
Sorry, but I can't help you. Take it to Apple and have them reload Photo Booth.

Ah! I should have asked if the camera works.

Try deleting and reinstalling Photobooth.

If it happens again, just try restarting photobooth. Mine fails to initialize on occasion, a quick exit and relaunch and things are kosher again.

Only happens with Photobooth though, not with iChat. :confused:
