Hello,

I recommend the Acer line of products all the time and love working on them when they come in for upgrades.

You probably do not have IR installed or you'd have a transceiver attached to your tower.. You probably have a connector and IR is capable of being added on to your tower.

You will need to contact Acer and ask them to sell you the proper add on and or instruct you on what vendor to use to purchase one. They come with instructions. You'll end up with an attachment insert that goes in one of the blank slots at the bottom of your tower. You then plug in a transceiver unit that has a cable and you can then bring this around front so its accessible by another IR device. Normally, these were intended to be used with early versions of wireless mice. Now they are used for multimedia hand held remote controls that can turn up and turn down volume of a DVD playing, etc.

With a cell phone, you are much better off purchasing or using your USB cable that attaches to your cell phone and plugs into your PC. Then you can open the cell phone as a removable hard drive and transfer ring tones and mp3 files into the proper folders on your cell phones memory card.

Usually, you have to go through your phone store online to order the USB cable for your model, unless you have one. This is the easiest hassle-free method. Doing it by IR is full of problems waiting to surface and challenge you.

I hope this answers your question and if it does please rate this reply as 'Fixed'. Thank you in advance.

I'll still be glad to assist you later when you have the cable. You can click on my board nickname and then bookmark that profile page. Later you can return and click on the Ask Me button and I'll get an email you've made a request.

Let me know, if there is more you need to know before you rate this response. I'm here to help, sometimes not at my laptop every minute, but I will get back to you quickly.

Regards,
Worldvet

You can confirm your remote's IR output by pointing to the phone camera and if the remote works it will be seen as a flash on the camera. Now after confirming the remote then the the IR detector on teh TV can be checked. It is always mounted on the FRONT panel and is a small DIODE mounted to face the IR panel ****. It is easily seen and can be checked using a multimeter . In the Ohmn's range in one direction a flash of light will increase the flow and continuity when the probes are held across the diode. If teh IR is good then it is a fault on the processor controller.

Jello, you meam that IR isn't emitting red light? If the IR isn't working then it has a bad IR luminator, broken wire, bad switch. Now the on/off switch get it power from battery to IR, it just one simple circuit. Also don't look at the IR light if it's on. Also don't point or look at bright lights with this NV devices, it will destroy the image intensifier tube. stewbison

Can i sync a handspring?


Recent version's of the HOTSYNC app have a provision for IR transfers (older versions may not though). So you should check the HOTSYNC app on the Visor and see if it already has IR transfer abilities. If it does: Use the downarrow to specify the IR transfer on the Visor. Setup HOTSYNC on the computer to accept IR transfers. Line up the ports and tap the HOTSYNC button on the Visor's display. If it doesn't: You may be outta luck. Downloading an updated version of the HOTSYNC app (or some other utility) won't help because you'll need to Sync in order to get the app on the Visor.

Sync via IR


There are a number of things to check: * You should first make sure that the PC that you are synchronizing with has an IR port. * If you have Palm software loaded, you should disable it. * If your PC has an IR port, then you should verify that the Microsoft ActiveSync software settings are correct. To do this you open the Microsoft ActiveSync window on your desktop and go to File --> Connection Settings and verify that the box that allows infrared connection is checked and the IRDA is selected. * Change the angle of the unit and make sure that there is nothing interfering with your signal. * Try removing the LCD protection cover.

Error message using IrComm port


Hi, Right click on hotsync manager at the bottom right corner of the pc , make sure only local serial and ir is having a check mark , if anything else has check mark , just go to that and do a left click , it will get unchecked . On the handheld tap on home , on the main page u will see hotsync icon , tap on that , on the hotsync page make sure via ir , and not cradle or cable , then at the top u will see hotsync in words , tap on that , in the drop down u will see lan sync pref, tap on that and make sure lan sync is highlighted , and not local hot sync , since local hotsync is usefull only when u perform cradle or cable hot sync using usb , then click on ok , try a hotsync . If this doesnt help and again u get the same error , do a soft reset on the handheld and on the pc , go into hotsync manager , click on setup , choose local , change the com port to a different port and reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart the pc and again perform a hotsync . The error u got was coz of this , on ur pc a ir port is not been assigned .. Try this it should work .. Regards
