Go to Applications->Utilities->System INformation.app Under the USB header,check to see if the FaceTime HD Camera is detected. If it is not then you have a hardware problem with the camera.

If it is detected you might have another user account "tying up" the camera, or a corrupted application that has damaged your isight camera extension.. Enable only one user account at a time, oR, create a new user account and see if the problem persists.
