Nextion Display freezes up when sending reset serial command

Question. How come if I send the serial command "rest" to the nextion display (which should make it reset), the display just freezes up. It never resets. I have been able to send other commands and the display responds perfectly fine. But I need to get the reset command working. Anyone know of any ways I can fix this. All the help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

This was not one of the bug fixes in 0.37. "rest" works in the debugger but freezes the actual device.


This has been tested with v0.38 and confirmed to work.  As soon as the rest command is sent, the device performs a reset and then send the following 10 bytes.

0x00 0x00 0x00 0xFF 0xFF 0xFF

0x88 0xFF 0xFF 0xFF

The connection may need to be reset as well, as the connection should have been severed and reconnected

These 10 bytes should be in the receive buffer until read and/or cleared.

This will be marked as solved.
