iSights don't fail that often, if yours isn't working I don't think you should try and mess with it yourself. I'd just take your machine in.

Have you connected another camera or changed the camera settings? Not sure if this would do anything, but it's worth a shot.

Just a stupid kid with a computer, so take my advice with a grain of salt if that makes a difference to you.

I have a lot of research about that iSight camera. Many recent Apple computers such as MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMac computers come with a built-in iSight camera that you can use for several purposes, including participating in video chat sessions over the Internet with a broadband Internet connection. But I wanted to ask if this iSight camera can be a spy camera?

Please start your own thread in preference to hijacking someone else's thread. When you do this, you are sending the thread in another direction hindering the OP's chance of finding a solution.
