    Fixed this problem myself. A force-shutdown did the job, if anyone's wondering.

    Ok, so although I've fixed this temporarily many times, it keeps coming back after a while. Does anyone have any clue why this would do that or how to fix it? I tried resetting the PRU (can't quite remember if that's what it was called) or whatever, the thing that helps with isight, and it fixed it only for a few hours....help!!

    Have you tried seeing if there is any software updates for it?

    would reinstalling address any problems? Perhaps some part of the app was somehow deleted? You should be able to find an installer on the software CD.

    Have you tried deleting your photobooth preference file? If that doesnt work you should be able to just re-install photobooth if you get pacifist and just extract that program from the disk. Make sure you delete your preference files before you open the new photobooth. If you do a spotlight search for photobooth they should show up and then drag them to the trash. The link for Pacifist is below good luck.

    Thanks for the help. Does the preference file end in .plist? If so, then I'll delete that, and if that doesn't work I'll reinstall.

    This is bad...I'm sorry no-one could solve this one for you....what Mac do you have?

    The following is my last suggestion, I'm afraid:

    (PRAM/NVRAM)

    Finally, you can perform two system adjustments that help some mysterious problems:

    Try to reset your PRAM:

    1. Shut down the computer.
    2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    3. Press the power button to turn the computer on. You will hear the computerís startup sound.
    4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
    5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    6. Release the keys.

    Also reset the NVRAM (Will not work with an Intel Mac):

    First, shut down your computer. Then boot up, and press and hold the Command-Option-O-F keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

    Then, do the following

    1. At the Open Firmware prompt, type: reset-nvram
    2. Press Return.
    3. At the Open Firmware prompt, type: set-defaults
    4. Press Return.
    5. At the Open Firmware prompt, type: reset-all
    6. Press Return.
    7. If your computer does not automatically restart, then type: mac-boot

    To my horror, the problem has returned. It must be a problem with isight, since reinstalling photobooth did nothing. Does anyone have any more suggestions?
