If you have LPR driver installed it should be frozen else you cannot  
select the irda printer.
Which irda printer are you using?  Most people have reported success  
with the HP 130 and it should be on the select printer list.
There is also an upgrade driver
The fact that you don't see light when attempting to print suggests  
that driver is missing or not selected, I suspect the second since it  
should be built in.
Sometimes a reset solves random problems.
