Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. A host to host communication error would be a matter of communicating data to another computer system. So the display cable would have nothing to do with it. Check the cable that networks or otherwise connects your system (whatever it is) to the other systems... and let me know more details, e.g. when and where the error message appeared and also what your computer system is, Windows or MAC OS X, or perhaps Linux or other system.

i'm running windows and the cables are connected firmly - the cable that runs from the display to the machine is connected also.
this is what the xerox help shows - turn the machine off and when the machine is fully turned off disconnect the cable. wait 3 minutes and then turn it back on and connect the cable - still not work. because i am behind on my payments xerox will not come and service this machine. HELP

OK. Did the error appear on the Xerox device, or on your Windows system's screen? What was the full and exact text of the error message (and any number code that went with it) ?

Try using the Web-based interface to your Xerox 7655, from a computer, to configure it to Updates Enabled again. It may be that updates are disabled. The Web-based interface would be accessible not from the touch-screen, but from a computer (one networked to the Xerox machine), using a web browser on the computer.
