When you start the cheese program, the program displays a black screen and says “devices not found”

My webcam is built into my laptop. I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu.

Today, for a few tens of seconds, the webcam started working (via a browser through the desired site, where I just need it)

What can I do to make the camera work?
 


And the make and model of your laptop is?...
 
Using ChatGPT, I was able to find out that to turn on the camera it was necessary to press the Fn + F10 key (or any other F where there is a camera icon)

And it works

This is more common on newer laptops & notebooks, its a security thing
