      I'd be interested by the output of ./umax_pp -p -t 1 , to know how 
your scanner is detected. You can also try to put an 'astra' option in 
umax_pp.conf (in /usr/local/etc/sane.d by default) :

option astra 2000


option astra 1600

    I think your scanner has a 1600P CCD but is treated like a 2000P, or 
the other way round.
