The iSight on my new MacBook Air won't work in any apps at all after the 10.8.5 update, and the system profiler says that there is no camera plugged in.

 

Before the update the camera worked on the built in apps such as Photo Booth, but not in Skype. So I found this article (http://community.skype.com/t5/Mac/Camera-not-Working-on-MacBook-Air-today-s-last -version/td-p/1927641) and that fixed it. But after the update nothing works, and I believe it's because of the solution the Skype forum suggested.

 

Does anyone have some good tips for me?

 

Edit: The OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 Supplemental Update did not solve the problem
