Greetings to all!
Integrated Camera it is possible Enable/Disable to make only from on Windows!
For this purpose it is necessary to download from a Lenovo site - Lenovo BIOS Setup using Windows Management Instrumentation Deployment Guide.
Here the link: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/thi
Further it is necessary to download Sample Scripts for BIOS Deployment Guide.
Here the link :http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mob
Further all to read or make so:
1) to Unpack script.zip on disk C:\
2) to Launch in a command line C:\SetConfig.vbs IntegratedCameraAccess Enable
3) After that to complete operation. The notebook to be ungeared.
4) to Include a supply. The notebook will start to be launched and ungeared almost at once.
All IntegratedCameraAccess Enable.
At following switching-on the notebook will start to be loaded further.
How to look IntegratedCameraAccess Enable or IntegratedCameraAccess Disable in Bios:
1) to Unpack script.zip on disk C:\
2) to Launch file C:\ListAll.vbs and to push OK some times, yet there will be no point IntegratedCameraAccess.
Excuse for the bad English!
To me IntegratedCameraAccess Enable - has not helped, (it and so was Enable).
Probably defect LCD Cable (((

If the camera setting show in Fn+F6, but does not see image or black image -> shutdown your laptop, wait for 10s, reboot in battery power, after bios load finished (start booting window) you can pluged in your adapter. This method may help the camera get back to work (just for me).
If the camera setting does not show in Fn+F6 function, I think you must uninstall camera driver and Thinkpad Communication, shutdown, wait for 10s, reboot in battery power, check the intergrated camera display in bios (you can pluged in your adapter after bios load finished), reinstall driver and thinkpad communication, and perform the steps above one again, maybe the camera will comeback.
I does not understand why booting system in battery power can make the camera work again, I think bug in bios may cause conflict between camera and other device, and it only happen when bootting in ac power.

I hope this helps ( signed up just to post this )
This fixed my T410.
as many others have suggested:
Uninstall the intergrated camera drivers
Uninstall the Communication utility
Open Device manager.
Remove the unknown Device.
This is then where i did something different.
uninstall the following
Both Generic USB Hubs
Both Intel Chipset Family USB host controller ( 3b34 & 3b3c )
Both USB Root hub.
####DONT REBOOT UNTIL YOU HAVE REMOVED ALL OF THEM#####
once restarted windows should find the Intergrated camera.
you can then re install the communications utility.
Hope that helps

My webcam also decided to stop functioning after ~15 months on my T410s (first gen i5).
I tried EVERYTHING that was posted on this 8 page thread and nothing worked. However, I did find a solution.
Here's what I did and I hope it works for you too:
1) If installed, uninstall the intergrated camera driver - in my case, I had updated with the newest version so I uninstalled that. Control Panel --> Uninstall program --> Integrated Camera Driver
2) Uninstall the unknown USB driver with the yellow caution sign under Start --> right click Computer --> Properties --> device manager --> USB controllers
3) Restart the computer and access BIOS by hitting F1 (not the ThinkVantage button)
4) Go to Security --> I/O (if i remember correctly) --> disable USB ports and disable microphone (you might not need to disable microphone)
4) Save out of the BIOS by hitting F10 and follow with computer restart. Your wireless mouse and microphone should be disabled (check by typing Sound Recorder under start - no audio input should be detected)
5) Restart and access the BIOS again and re-enable USB ports and microphone.
6) When you save out of the BIOS and Windows loads again you should have access to your USB peripherals but not your microphone (still).
5) *IMPORTANT* Shut down your computer. *IMPORTANT* Unplug your AC power adapter and wait 5 seconds.
6) Restart your computer on battery power and once booted you can plug in your AC adapter again.
Start Skype or hit Fn+F6 and you should have both the microphone and webcam displayed/working.
The key here was to do the last boot up on battery power. In the T410s BIOS, if you look at the 'enable' microphone setting under the I/O list, it will tell you to shut down, and boot up on battery. Why I don't know but I suspect a cold boot is different than one where power is continuously supplied to the computer via AC. This did fix my microphone but also my webcam problem.
I hope this works for you and thank you so much to yuipcheng and JameZ for their helpfup insight.
T410s, M560 i5 @ 2.67ghz, 160gb SSD, 8gb RAM, Nvidia Optimus graphics, Win7 64bit
This settled the issue for me. No need for a second reboot, just reboot without power when you go in to change the USB setting back to enabled and you should be fine.

I think i've cracked it
for ages mines been appearing and dissapearing in device manager as either the camera or "unknown Device"
no combination of uninstalling drivers / software flashing bios ect has ever worked.
But this did!.
In utter frustration with the "Unknown USB Device" notificaition poping up i decided to shut it up and just unplug the webcam
pop off the screen bezil:
take off the 2 stickers covering the screws by the hinges and remove the screws closest to the center of the laptop.
the other 2 can stay in.
Pop the bezil off and right at the top should be a white plug connected to the camera board.
Restart the laptop and let windows boot up.
Shut it down. re connect the camera and boot up again.
With any luck windows works it out and seems to stay... and unlike some other temporay fixes this seems to stay after multiple reboots
Hope that helps
