NFC is checked but grayed out

I have an android device with the 4.1.1 version operating system that I am having troubles with. I need to be able to use the nfc technology to read an RFID tag. When I attempt to use a software such as NFC tools I get an error saying the NFC is disabled. When I go to settings the box beside NFC is checked but it is grayed out. I would like to know what this means.
