Where is the infrared receiver?
So my MacBook Pro(13-inch Mid-2012 Unibody) can receive infrared signals, but it is unreliable(often does not like to work). What I am trying to figure out is where the infrared receiver is, so I can make sure it is not covered and make sure it is clean. I have found some information indicating that it was on a bracket along with the sleep ID light, and/or holding the hard drive, but on earlier models. I have not been able to find anything conclusive saying that it is in the same place on my model.
Also, I'm not sure exactly where on the outside case of the assembled product that would place the receiver. That, I believe I could find out myself by going through the teardown/repair guides/videos, but I'm not sure of it being on that part to begin with. I also think it would be easier if someone here knows or remembers off the top of their head where that bracket/light/receiver is. Any help here would be appreciated.
Is this a good question?
