NFC problem on Bold 9790 !

There is this NFC problem I started having suddenly !
Whenever I try to turn on NFC, there is this green cirlcle that rotates whenever you turn on anything, it gets stuck on that.

I tried replacing the back cover (back cover has nfc) from a different Bold 5 and it still doesn't work. Where as my cover works on the other Bold 5.

Bottomline : NFC doesn't turn on.

Re: NFC problem on Bold 9790 !

Not really, when I connect it to the Desktop Manager, I don't see the "Other Versions" of my device which I use to reinstall the OS.
On the other hand, I have wiped my phone once due to BBM 7.
Could it possibly be a hardware issue?
