iSight green light always on / Camera not working

As soon as the laptop is turned on, the green light comes on and stays on.


- Unplugged the battery and camera cable at the logic board

- Reset SMC/PRAM

- Tried a different program besides Skype.

The camera will not show up (microphone works fine).

Before I take the drastic measure of replacing this difficult to replace camera, is there anything left to try? :)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

when you reset the pram did u hold the keys till it chimes 3-4 times? sometimes just once isn't enough

No, unfortunately. I'm guessing it was a hardware error but replacing that camera in a unibody model is a pain
