Chromebook c720P webcam

Hi all,

i have a Acer Chromebook C720P and when i log in and go to the camera app it says that some other app is using the camera. At that moment i don't have any other program running because i just started the chromebook. When i go to the google Hangouts app is says that there is no camera detected .. 

Anybody here who knows how to fix this or with the same problem? 

I sent my chromebook back to Acer and they have built a new camera in but after that i still have the problem.

    go to chrome://extensions/ and disable everything. There might be a bad extension using the camera when it's not supposed to.

    I disabled all extensions and i tried with a few extensions enabled and sometimes the camera turns on but even with the extensions disabled it does not turn on.
