Hello,

I have quite strange scanner behavior: I can scan one page only. If I reconnect the scanner I can scan one page again... Any thoughts regarding this problem.
After scanning one page, the scanner is still listed using 'lsusb', but 'scanimage -L' doesn't find any scanners anymore.


P.S. I don't use scanner regularly, but the last time I've been scanning a few month ago everything was working without any problems.

I had a different problem with one of my USB scanners (scanner applications crashed for that scanner but not for a different scanner) but I wonder if what I had to do would help in your case too. Although sane-backends-1.0.24-r1 is marked as stable, I found that the only way scanner applications work with that scanner was by downgrading to 1.0.23-r2.
