Just noticed the IR port on me C120+ seems to not be working. I've confirmed (by testing with and between other devices) that it's definitely this and not one of the others, and that it's definitely not working where it was before. I've taken the little panel off and cleaned (with alcohol on a corron bud) the IR tranciever LED assembly thingy, and cleaned and polished the little panel that protects it. Absolutely nothing happens.

Is there anything I might have done wrong or maybe neglected to try?

Thanks.

Really hard to second guess. Possibilities include:

1) Infrared led burnt out
2) The circuitry that makes the infrared had failed
3) Some application you installed is affecting irda control
4) It is working, just weak

Suggestion: Make sure you have a full charge, back up your device then perform a hard reset and then try again before installing a lot of apps. Also move the irda windows to within 3" of each other. Lastly check the control panel for the network irda connections though a hard reset should take care of any irregular settings.

OK. I did a hard reset and it's still not working. Not a big deal I guess, just a shame haha. Oh well. Thanks
