If it's from a photocopier, it's probably proprietary.  If you had to pull it, that means there's not a lot of them floating around or for sale, which means that there will be nobody with software for it.  You could try searching forums in the off chance that somebody pulled the same display from the same photocopier, found the tech documents, and wrote their own software for it that they were kind enough to upload to the internet, but aside from that, you'd be better off getting a T6963c or a SED1330 LCD display and using PowerLCD.

i ahve actually seen a ton of LCD with that connector and i had an LCD (full color TFT) that was pulled off a photocopier (not liek it was in it it was connected to a printsever and was a touchscreen for making copies it was about 10 inches) anywyas that ahs that same connection and it connected to a speciaL. the port it connected to was liek a aprralel port but it had 3 rows of pins... the card also ahd a vga output and it was PCI sadly whenevr i ripped open the LCD to take the plastci casing off i think i may ahve done something to the inverter board and it now no longer runs....

A multimeter isn't going to tell you anything.  Chances are, if the pins aren't marked, you can't find a document, and you don't know the controller, you're SOL.
