A graphical display will not have a HD44780 on it. The HD44780 is a character controller only.

Please see if you can get the controller number, and then you might be able to find a data sheet.

He probably means HD61104 (i have one right here). I'd also much like advice on connecting it and such.. I've already posted a thread about it but it didn't give much unfortunately... here is my thread: https://forum.crystalfontz.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=804 You speak about a controller board.. I'd like schematics and if possible a board layout.... But frankly.. I shouldn't be asking for anything.. I'm not even one of your customers. I'd like to be but i don't believe in having to pay $30 just for getting the display shipped.
 
Very sorry about the large HTML Mr Fontz but it's the best way to show the table for pinout of the LCD

All i can find out is it's a JM12232A

Thanks for the help :)
