Used Migration Assistant to migrate from Mac Mini (which is without iSight) to MacBook Pro (which has iSight). MacBook Pro was installed with OS X 10.6, then Software Update(d) to 10.6.8, before downloading Lion installer from Mac App Store.

What I've checked so far - iSight camera is not detected by iChat, Photo Booth, Skype. - System Profiler does not detect Camera under list of USB device - There are AppleUSBDevices framework installed at the default location with proper file permissions

I've also read through Google search results dating from 2006 to 2011.

    We'll need more information to help you. Can you say more about "not working" - specifically, what things you have tried that don't work? When you run applications that uses the iSight, PhotoBooth f/ex, does the iSight LED light up, and what do you see in the video window? Does System Profiler show a "Built-in iSight" in the USB section? Did the iSight work at any of the update stages you mentioned? Has it ever worked?

Pleased to report my iSight was working in my MBP with a new logic board.
