Macbook Pro : Built in iSight camera not working? fix

MacBook Pro build-in camera (iSight) has not been working properly. At first the camera works normally then after a while it stops but the green light stays on. When users try to open Photo booth or other apps it says

  • “camera not connected”
  • “No iSight Camera Detected”
  • “There is no camera connected”.

Open Terminal and type the following command.

sudo killall VDCAssistant

This command will restart the camera software. It will fix 90% of camera problems. Now Reopen Skype like apps to check the camera.
