    Turn off computer,  wait 1 mintue,  then hold down (on the left side only) shift conttrol and otion keys) with all 3 of those pressed also hold the power key for 5 seconds and let them all go at the same time.  Nothing will happen, then wait 30 seconds and turn on computer, click facetime and BOOM!! Your welcome!!! Just got off the phone with applecare and this worked for me after mountain lion. She explained why it worked but its too much to type.

    resetting my SMC did nothing. It has a slightly different process for the air to do an smc reset though. I took my computer to the store and they thought it was a hardware issue so they replaced the entire computer for free. As soon as i got back home, i had the same issue again on the new computer. I'm wondering if i should go back or wait it out.
