    Dprough,

    I'm having the same problem, and it worked before I upgraded.
    Apple please fix (screen shots below show iSight camera isn't on the USB, and also the error when attempting to use any camera application IE: Photobooth, FaceTime, etc...

    Having the same issue on a 2009 MacBook Pro. Camera was working prior to Mountain Lion. Apple please fix it ASAP.

    Same with me. Video chat was happening in skype, then some updates hapened and now the camera shows disconnected, in macbook air .

    Same here on my MBPr.. I just hope it's fixable by software or firmware update and that apple will do that soon since I didn't try the camera before installing Mountain Lion so I'm not sure if mine is a hardware problem or not.

    I am also having this issue. Has anyone had resolution to this issue? 2011 Macbook Air. Camera fine until ML.

    Man, no skype, facetime, nothing with a camera after mountain lion. What the **** do I do. No Apple store in my area. If they fix one of yours and tell you what they did, PLEASE let us know. I can't skype with family and this computer isn't but 6 months old. MBP

    Exact same issue - hope a fix comes soon - looks like it is expecting HD (like in the newest airs) but gives up when there is only SD....

  • AlyMourad Level 1 (0 points)

    Kinda same problem.. No official Apple store in my country and I have doubts that apple authorized reseller here will try to fix it but mess something else in my less than a month old MBP Retina. and yeah they don't do exchanges here..

     

    Atleast hoping since it's a widespread issue that Apple will look into it and fix via Software/Firmware updates soon. although I'm kinda worried since I didn't try the camera before updating to mountain lion.

    Mine is a new MBP Retina so it's Facetime HD camera but it doesn't work as well.

    Restarted without an update after closing everything and it now works perfectly...

    I don't know how to tell everyone at once so if you know how please get this around the forums;

     

    With the computer off, using the left side of the keyboard press and hold;

     

    Shift

    Control

    Option

    and the power key for 5 seconds

     

    1.....2.....3....4.....5...

    then let go of them all at the same time

     

    Nothing will appear to have happened-   Turn your computer back on and open facetime- YEAAAAH Buddy! Just worked on mine and feel its my duty to tell others. No clue how to post in all. Thanks to a sweet girl named Rachel at Applecare.
