    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?

    Take it to Apple. Sounds like a bad camera or camera connection.

    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:
