When I was trying to open Photo Booth, I get a message that says "There is no camera connected" despite my Mac having a built-in iSight.
1. PRAM reset
2. SMC reset
3. Boot into Safe Mode
4. Try other applications
Any other ideas/fixes? Thanks.
You have tried several good troubleshooting ideas, celticpride678
For any iSight problem, including this one, first try restarting the Mac. If the problems persist, try all relevant suggestions from:
If your iSight problem still occurs in more than one app and more than one user account, the reset suggested there often restores proper function of inbuilt iSight.
However, if your built-in iSight still does not work after carefully following all the suggestions in the "How to Troubleshoot iSight" article, and if iSight does not show as a USB hardware device in your Mac's System Profiler utility, yours is most likely a hardware problem. In that case, contact Apple or an Apple-Authorized Service Provider for service.
OK. I actually have an appt. with the Genius Bar in an hour. I'll report back then. Thanks.
