    It's now been four days since I recieved my new Macbook. Nothing major has upset me, other than the fact that today when I visited Photobooth I noticed there was no image being recognized by the camera. Thinking it was due to lack of light(which has been the case often) I turned on lights and went to the effects pages, all of which displayed the same blank image, only in the different colors and ways it can do. I then let the computer sit, hoping something minor had not registered and maybe it would solve the error in a few hours. Four hours later the camera is still not picking up anything. The green light next to it is lit, and everything else seems to be completely normal. Anyone else have this problem, or are there any suggestions? Much appreciated--Max

    No image on the Macbook? Better bring it back to Apple and have them take a look at it. It might be the hardware itself, which apple should fix or replace for you free.

    Could another app be using the camera? Have you tried restarting? :)
