I've tried to find the problem mentioned elsewhere but perhaps someone else can help me.

Shortly after I purchased my otherwise reliable Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook, way back in March 2007 I've found that the Isight always cuts out if the screen is moved along its hinge (i.e a screen angle adjustment). If you move it very slowly it cuts out but then comes back a second later.

Once it cuts out the problem can only be fixed by restarting.

A couple of days ago I opened the lid to check the connection of the cable in to the isight but this seems to be fine and the problem remains.

How can I fix this? It bugs me.

(BTW I don't have any warranty or apple care)
