@aarg
I believe you meant 'sink' not 'supply' 60ma.
.
It is definitely not wrong to use "supply".  Whether sinking or sourcing you are still supplying current.

Please don't PM me with technical questions. Post them in the forum.

Okay, then... "provide" 60mA.
But that is a synonym for "supply".  Contradiction predicted in 5, 4, 3,... here it comes...

I was about to report that to moderator for "excessive" humour.

He started it first with this very funny reply.

The TLC5940 has open drain detection that shuts down the output when it falls below .3V.  By touching the outputs you are probably discharging yourself into the output and allowing normal operation.
The output is open drain so HTF can the output fall below 0.3V. Pure comic genius. Well it must be because it is not electronics is it?
