I am in Thailand and having the same IDENTICAL problem. If I squeeze the screen on both sides of the ipad the camera might pop up and work for an hour or so or even a day but the next time when I really want it, boom, no camera. Went to the Apple ipad store here in Korat Thailand and they did all they could, rebooted. loaded unloaded, but refused to replace it no matter how hard I tried and I was overly nice to them as I always am to everyone. They told me to go to a store in Bangkok and guess what , cannot get to Bangkok as it is flooded out now what.? If I send it back to states it will be a hundred dollars there and back. """???????
