Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
Firstly, check the webcam is properly connected if it's USB. If it's built-in, obviously there's no need to do this.
Open Skype, then select "Options" from the "Tools" menu at the top.
Next, choose "Video settings" from the menu on the left hand side. Your camera should initialize and you should be able to see yourself on screen.
If you can't see yourself, try rebooting the PC. It was working OK for a few seconds so it's unlikely to be missing drivers or any serious problem .

Tips for a great answer:
1-from tools menue go to options->video settings. Now if you are able to see your image on the screen then the cam is working fine. click the webcam settings and default all the settings
2-secondly if the web cam is fine then try to initiate a voice call first and once the voice call is active then try to initiate the video call, This was a workaround we used to do long time ago for this kind of issue.
3-Try reinstalling skype
