Default Baking

I have been trying to bake textures on a piece i am currently working on. Everything goes fine, apart from one planar trimmed surface which comes out completely black.

there seem to be no errors in the script editor, so i am completely lost

-ctrl a on the plane and make sure nuthin in in your transparency node.
-Try doing a modelling/textures/automatic mapping on the plane
before you bake it ...
-check the normals
-make sure you have decent "bounce cards" set up to bounce the
photons onto the plane
