tried resetting PRAM and NVRAM. checked all connections. also on the other thread there was no fix. should i try buying a new cable ?


ehh yes! there is cable issue or in logic board connector..


ive read on some forums that if its a logic board connector problem, then the webcam wouldn't work. however my camera works for me. could it be a software problem?


you have to try it on other friends mac if you can...best way for no less money and time.

good luck!
