How can I fix photo booth on my Mac laptop?

kristen March 23, 2010

My photo booth app on my macbook pro has been messed up for a while now. It shows green lines sometimes and rarely takes a picture. It goes to a gray screen and makes me restart my computer.
How do I fix this? And if it’s not something I can do myself, where can I send it to apple to be repaired? I don’t think I have a warranty, but I will pay to get it fixed.

      I recommend that you ask a new question.

      in case you don't receive an answer here (sorry, don't use Mac myself), please post this as a new question.

    Does it produce an error? Did you add any plugins or third party tools to Photo Booth? Have you tried repairing your permissions?

    What OS are you on? Have you tried downloading another version of Photo Booth?
