This machine may still be under warranty or if it's just out Apple may allow you to add AppleCare. What's the purchase date? If you don't remember go here and input your serial number. If you registered it it my show if it is still covered:

Using this IFIXIT guide: MacBook Air 11" Early 2015 Display Replacement Follow the first group of steps (Steps 1 thru 3). Then jump down to Step 7 making sure its connected.

If you see any damage due to dampness you may need to clean the logic board and connector with a moist cotton swab with a good quality isopropyl alcohol (85% or better).

If that doesn't fix it I suspect your iSight camera is bad and that will require replacing the full lid assembly unless you can find someone with the needed skills and parts to replace the camera unit from a junker system.
