When i first got my laptop the camera was working fine, I've then gone on to skype my sister an the camera is showing weird dark lines through it an I'm just pitch black, any idea why or how this happens? Really grateful if someone could help me! Thanks in advance

I think Ubuntu has some problem initializing this camera. See my answer here: askubuntu.com/questions/296330/… What's your Ubuntu version. Did you find any solution? –  Malachiasz Nov 2 '13 at 22:17
