Legion y730 missing a Sata cable

I recently purchased a Legion y730. I took note of the fact that it could acomodate a 2.5in sata drive but chose to purchase a model without an included 2.5in drive because i have a 1TB SSD i planned to install.

 

I was quite surprised when I opened it I found a cage clearely intended for a 2.5in drive, but no sata connector. After some looking I found a cable connector ont eh motherboard labeled HDD that was empty. See pictures.20190313_224947.jpg20190313_225008.jpg

 

Does anyone happen to know what part I'm missing and if there's any way i could aquire it, preferably free of charge? IMHO hobbling expansion just becuase the purchaser didn't want a platter drive for storage in this day and age is pretty shaddy.

 

Thanks very much,

 

Torger

Hi Torger,

 

Greetings.

 

You would need PN 5C10S56971 (HDD FFC C 81HD cable).

Directions here in page 52 of the hardware manual.

 

Not sure if tech support will give it for free so you would need to purchase the cable from Lenovo encompass or other resellers using the part number.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi Torger,

 

Usually it is best to purchase using the PN 5C10S56971 instead of the description alone specially from third parties. Best to check the return option and comments of those that have purchased it before deciding.

 

Another thing that you may want to review is some reported issue others have like those mentioned on this post.

 

Regards

Whelp I have to eat a little crow on this one.

 

When I got home from work today i did a once over of all the packaging materials and found the missing sata cable had been included in a ziplock bagey.

 

I still think it's a little weird that it was shipped outside the laptop rather than installed but regardless I take back teh word shady. Lenovo has done no wrong in this situation.

 

So if you're from the future reading this wondering where your sata cable is double check the packaging :3

Hi Torger,

 

Good that you were able to check it back the packaging so there is no need to purchase.

 

As answer to your initial question on the post, the HDD cable is PN 5C10S56971 (HDD FFC C 81HD cable) is the part wissing from what is currently installed to add another storage for your model.

 

Please don't hesitate to visit our Community at anytime.
