built in cam issues.

Recommended Posts

up to about 4 weeks ago , i used my built in camera on skype/yahoo/messenger and a few other sites.

have had no problems.

then the cam would not open in yahoo/messenger or other sites.but would open ok in skype.

i un-installed flash player and re-installed flash player...(10..

when i try and open the cam in several sites, i get a grey over screen and telling me that the cam is not connected or is being used in another application.please shut down all applications then re open cam.

i have no applications running.

but still no cam...

any advice for an ageing old sod.

am using a27'i5 mac.

You might also want to check the System Profiler and see if it is at least seeing the iSight. Applications-->Utilities-->System Profiler

For reference: System Profiler will list it as an iSight under the USB section.
