From what I have read you will need to take it in to an Apple store for repair / service.

Try resetting the PRAM by doing a cold start while holding down the command-option-p-r key combination until you hear the startup chime a third time.

Can you turn the camera upside down?

On a more serious note why not use the time machine and see if you can go back to when it was working. If it is not a configuration issue then it might be hardware in which case you would need to bring it to apple most likely.
