    When I open photobooth a black screen comes up showing completely nothing.

    When I remove the camera it shows that no camera is connected. So it detects the camera but doesn't show the image?

    Any help?

    What model/brand external webcam are you using? If the webcam has drivers, are they installed?

    I'm using a Sony Eye Toy.

    Drivers are installed.

    Have you tried simply quitting and reopening Photobooth? My iMac periodically comes up with a black screen in Photobooth. If I quit and reopen, everything works.

    Sometimes I find pulling my webcam out and reconnecting it with Photo Booth running sorts it out. 99% of the time it's fine but occasionally it weirds out - some settings in Photo Booth to help work out what on earth is going on would be appreciated sometimes.

    Can you read the system requirements and if it even works on 10.5.x?
