[dear visitors, could you leave a comment about what you think the cause for this problem is? – Tim 20070512]

I had the unfortunate experience with the ‘green screen‘ problem today.
Instead of going to the mac store and perform all sorts of tests, you can try a hard reset first:

1. System Preference -> Software Update, update everything
2. Shut down your macbook, remove the power plug
3. flip your macbook over and remove the battery, wait a few minutes
4. put the battery back, power on
5. try Photo Booth again
