Re: Y560 - Installing bluetooth?

Well, the one's you linked to may work, I just do not know for sure.
With a good return policy, you could try them out?

Re: Y560 - Installing bluetooth?

So did anyone figure out if you can add internal BT to a Y560 that did not come with one installed from the factory??

Re: Y560 - Installing bluetooth?

According to the manual the BT is installed on the system board. It would be nice to know if the possibility exists without taking the laptop apart. If someone has the answer i would appreciate it Smiley Happy

Re: Y560 - Installing bluetooth?

if you have hardware support, you only need to activate bluetooth. switch the wireless adapter, press fn + f5 to activate bluetooth.

SO now here is my question. Does the Y560 that did not come with BT from the factory have the necessary connections for internal BT to be added? my exact model is the Y560-0646 

 

I would like to know if my laptop has the hardware support without taking it apart.

Re: Y560 - Installing bluetooth?

some of systems comes with bluetooth support, some of not.
make sure you order bluetooth support, check your box or receipt if you have bluetooth.

( also, when you activate wireless, if you don't see any bluetooth on/off button when you press fn + f5, you don't have bluetooth )

Re: YOU Bluetooth Module

Is it difficult for lenovo to put an internal Bluetooth device? In user manual it says laptop has Bluetooth you can turn it on by pressing fN plus f5 but when I do this I only see wireless network card surprise surprise there is no internal Bluetooth device. On the laptop there is also Bluetooth indicator.It is ridiculous.

Re: YOU Bluetooth Module

only some models come with bluetooth system.
it's not hard to install bluetooth hardware. you can check hardware maintenance manual for instructions.
( or you can use usb bluetooth )
