    A couple of long shots:

    One, FaceTime has an audio only mode. She can choose not to send her picture. This is pretty unlikely.

    FaceTime can also use either camera. If she has accidently chosen the back camera, and there is something covering it (like the cover) then you might not see anything but a black screen.

    There should be a little camera icon on the screen so you can switch back and forth.


    Off the top of my head I can't think of anything else that would stop the camera from working in FaceTime, but not in other apps. She can take pictures, yes?
