The iSight camera is within the lid and the small logic board its connected to has a sensor! The connection down on the logic board is also a strong possible failure area.
 
Sadly, the onboard diagnostics is a bit limited, I do believe the full version of TG Pro will pop an error but do you really need it, given the fact the FaceTime app tells you there’s an issue.
 
Take a good clear set of pictures of the connector area and cable ends (both sides) and post them here for us to see [guide|21499]

OK, I think I see your problem!
 
The connector is not fully seated!
 
Here’s yours
