• LPD6416 - each pixel has its own SR register

    That's not the case at all - it's very similar to your display in that there's a shift register for rows. In its case there's some kind of counter for columns, but it's the same in that if you stop calling the update function, nothing is displayed.

    It's worth trying what I suggest though - it'll probably work quite well.

    Just FYI, there's a Charlieplex module for Espruino too: http://www.espruino.com/Charlieplex
