C540 - Sata/Power cable burnt, replacement??

2015-11-27, 22:08 PM

i have been searching everywhere, i cant find a replacement!!

 

i'm trying to fix an all in one PC, 2013 model (going by the HDD manufacture date) but have no idea what model the all in one PC is.

 

took it apart and found that the Sata/Power cable combo had burnt, so need a replacement, been searching for 3 days online and cant find one.

 

Cable is labled

 

VBA00_HDD_CABLE

Motherboard connector end

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

I am assuming that you have the C540 model?  If there are no labels with the model number on the outside, the first page of the BIOS Setup screen will list the model number.

 

In doing a quick search on the Internet using the part numbers I found two U.S. sellers with the cable.  They are available, but pricey.  Here are the two I found......

 http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-HDD-Cable-90202107/dp/B00M25HRSY

 

There was also a previous discussion concerning the C540 and this cable.  Some users made their own using using a plain SATA cable.  Here is that discussion....

I had found that site with the very expensive replacement aswell :D

 

but, i have come accross something that i thought might work (which is a lot cheaper) but have no idea if it would fit.

 

it's called a 'picoPSU Peripheral 30cm power extension cable'

http://www.mini-box.com/picoPSU-150-XT-peripheral-extension-cable

 

but never come accross this sort of hardware, have no idea what it is and/or if it would fit.

 

i have been reading over that discussion whilst waiting for an answer, so will probably just splice a Sata power cable on the end and add a normal Sata cable.

 

not paying close to $100 for 1 cable! :D

This does NOT work.  The connector that attaches to the motherboard is NOT the same size as on the Lenovo part.

If a cable has burned there must be a short somewhere.  If you replace the cable without fixing the short, the new cable will burn.  My guess is that the disk is sick.

I agree, why hasnt there been a recall?  I had the same issue.  Attempts to talk to Lenovo was no help.
