Add Bluetooth to G560?

I recently purchased a refurbished G560 0649 that came without the optional Bluetooth module. I would like to add bluetooth to the unit but I'm having difficulty confirming which parts to buy/install. I found the description of the parts in the Lenovo G560 Hardware Maintenance Manual (p75 #14)... http://consumerdl.lenovo.cdn20.com/UserFiles/UserGuide/en/User's%20guides%20and%20manuals/G460-G560/... The part description(s) are as follows: Bluetooth card, BT2.1 + ED, Fcn BCM92070 BT2.1 EDR Flash U NB OR Bluetooth card, BT2.1 + ED, USI BCM92070 BT2.1 EDR Flash U NB So, here are my questions: Will any BCM92070 work? Which cable do I need? Is the Lenovo FRU # 20002266 the right daughter board? Will the Lenovo FRU # 31042935 - Bluetooth Cable fit? Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks, Mike

Re: Add Bluetooth to G560?

yes, they will work.
about the cable, prefer the one that on the manual.

( search ebay for the bcm device, they also send the cable )

Problem with the manual is that it does not provide any of the Lenvov FRU #'s or mention the cable part number at all....

 

For the BT Daughter board, under the FRU heading it lists: "TBD"

Cable not even listed in parts section.

 

On ebay, I can find a bunch of BCM92070MD units for many other Lenovo laptops that come with different cables depending on the laptop it's for.   I just don't know which one to get.

 

Thanks, though

Re: Add Bluetooth to G560?

you need to dissemble your computer before ordering it. just check the inputs then order the one matching.
sorry to say that but there's no other option except ordering both cable.
( if you order on ebay, you can return it if the cable doesn't work )

Re: Add Bluetooth to G560?

Did you ever get the BT working in your B560? I have a B570 and I'm at the same stage your at and was wanting to see if you have any advice on which parts to get. I bought one BT and it didn't work and I didn't know about the FRU's at the time. The hardware manual states the following.

 

Bluetooth card, BT2.1 + EDR, Fcn BCM92070 BT2.1 EDR Flash U NB 20002266

Bluetooth card, BT2.1 + EDR, USI BCM92070 BT2.1 EDR Flash U NB 20002326

 

 

The last BT I bought was this one. Had no idea one must use specific parts.

New 3.0 Bluetooth Module BCM92070MD + cable HP CQ42 G42

 

Anyway, any help would be appreciated. TIA!
