Checkpoint T-120U (4200) LCD Screen

I have several of these devices and hate to simply discard them as they are quite good appliances and will function well for pfsense use. That being said, I just loaded pfsense on one of them and it appears to run however, the LCD screen does not reflect any pfsense information.
I was wondering if anyone out there has been able to make it work. I found a few posts albeit a bit dated.
Any information, screenshots, suggestions, commentary, or otherwise are welcome.

PS: You might have to open the case and take pictures for more details...

Hi here are pic of this LCD - any idea how to setup this?!! !
It's also a 4200?
If so it's the EZIO-G500 for which I don't believe there is an lddproc driver. Yet.
It's possible to just write data to it just to ensure it works. You can pipe the system log to it for example.

Did anyone manage to get the LCD screen working on Checkpoint hardware?
I have a Checkpoint t-120 and the LCD screen isn't working.
Really appreciate any help with this
Not in the last 3 days!
Still needs an lcdproc driver. It's probably more complex that other displays since it can do full graphics not just characters.
However it also appears to have a much simpler mode since you can just send text at it and it will display something.

Anyone got the screen to work on this yet?
Not yet as far as i know. The issue here is that unlike the EZIO-100/300 there are no example drivers or even any specification to use to write anything. At least not publically, that I have found. If you can find anything let us know.
You can send text to it directly and it will display it but there's no formatting etc.

One way forward is to somehow disassemble the device and take detailed high resolution pictures of all the boards in the hope of discovering the controller chip, and go from there. Chances are the controller chip is documented...

any update on this? I got a Checkpoint 13500
Unfortunately not AFAIK. There's very little info available with which to make a driver. It requires more reverse engineering.
If you have any info add it here.

Hmm, OK that looks like a completely different screen. How many connections to the board does the LCM cable have? That looks like it might be USB connected, does pfSense see it as a USB device?
Does that screen board sit on top of another board with the buttons on it?
It's probably better to start a new thread on this as it's definitely not the EZIO-G500.
