I understand from your problem statement that the internal iSight camera in your G5 iMac turns itself off around 10 seconds after you turn it on.
Create a new temporary user in System Preferences / Accounts. Log out and then log in as this user. Enable the camera. Does it still turn off in 10 seconds? If not, something running in your other user account (a startup program or system preference) is interfering with the operation of your camera.
If you have a spare external drive, install a fresh version of the Mac OS on that drive, then boot from that drive. Does the camera still turn off in 10 seconds? If not, you should run an OS installation with "archive and install" on your internal drive. If it does, you have a hardware problem that requires a Mac tech. If this is indeed a G5 iMac, the repair will likely not be cost-effective.

Hi Krystine. If your imac has firewire ports then look on ebay for an Apple iSight Camera.If you haven't got Firewire - and even if you have. it's wqorth looking here http://agent.liquiddigital.com.au/

This is a USB version of the Apple iSight in all but name.
I've seen it working and can vouch for its quality.
