Laptop Webcam not detected

Hello
I have a Lenovo e495, and recently, while trying to use microsoft Teams, I saw the inbuilt webcam was no longer detected. I has worked in the past, but now can't be detected by Teams, OBS, or any other method.
I have tried rolling back the kernel to 4.19, rebooting several times, and pressed all the function keys.
Here are my outputs for

Cannot open device /dev/video0, exiting.

In the /dev/ folder, there is no video, video0 or video1

The webcam has worked in the past, but I don' know when it stopped working.
I have looked around the forum, and elsewhere, but no problems match my own.

Thank you for any tips.

I have the same problem with my HP G6 laptop.
The webcamera stopped working all of sudden.
Video capture utility does not load.
It worked fine in the past...don't know what happened.

Any help on this?
Thanks
