    I'm having trouble working with a MAX6959 display driver to power a 7-segment LED display. I can send ~4 characters to the display, but at that point it ceases to respond to new inputs without a hard reset.

    What am I missing? Is the STOP signal not working?

    Hello,

    There is a clear data / segment command.
    From the datasheet:

    I also attached the complete datasheet.

    Thanks. I must have read through the data sheet 5 times looking for that, and missed it each time.
