You best chance is the hpoj backend. If you can't get help on this
list, maybe the hpoj mailing list can help?

Without usbfs you can't use libusb to access your scanner. Check if
there are files in /proc/bus/usb. If yes, usbfs is mounted.

I'm not sure if sane-find-scanner can detect these HP MFDs. If they
tell the USB system that they are printers, sane-find-scanners will
ignore them. Adding the option "-v -v" will pront some more details.
