Webcam is not detected or unable to turn on the camera. Before going to the below troubleshooting flow, please give a quick check. Try different apps to identify whether it is a hardware problem. Different apps include Youcam, Skype, Line, Facebook messenger, etc.
The issue may be caused by:
Confirm webcam is on under Privacy
For models with Lenovo Settings installed, open Lenovo Settings and ensure camera is on
Check the camera is recognized correctly in Device Manager
Check in Device Manager if camera was disabled
Hardware failure is of high possibility. Contact Lenovo local service center

Thank you for taking the trouble to respnd. Solution was easier than expected. Turning off and on the application itself (and not just the laptop itself) made all the difference.
Thank you again.

I've solved the problem installing Lenovo Setting on my laptop but unfortunately, every time I shut down the laptop and on again I need to go to Lenovo Setting and switch on the privacy setting and off again, and then the webcam works. Anyone knows why?
Thanks in advance.

Here is How to disable inbuilt webcam camera for Windows 10
Use Windows +R shortcut keys to open the Run command box or manually open it from the Start menu.
Type in ‘devmgmt.msc’ in Run and press the Enter key.
In the Device Manager, select ‘Imaging devices’ from the given list.
Under Imaging Devices, right click the ‘Integrated Camera’ option and click on Disable. You will get a message saying ‘Disabling this device will cause it to stop functioning. Do you really want to disable it?” Clicking on Yes will disable the camera.
If the camera option does not say Integrated Camera, don’t get confused, the name of your webcam will be displayed in that space.

one can never be absolutely certain, however,
the Fn F8 key, (the one the camera crossed out) was my problem--I think
pressed F8 a viola, camera and video works.
The issue may be caused by:
I did the registry fix first, so YMMV
