    I think you are not using multiplexing,If you dont know what is multiplexing then google it with the keyword "Seven segment display multiplexing"

    Good Luck

    If you download AN526 from Microchip it has a 16 bit binary to BCD routine. That should help.

    The thing is i am not even sure if its possible to display a 3 digit value on the PIC16F627A becuase the last time I displayed a number,it was a 2 digit number.'

    what id like to know is how to connect 3 seven segment displays and be able to display a number like 156
