I don't know anything about this scanner, which means that I also don't 
know if the scanner is supported by the EPSON backend, or uses a 
different design that may fall into the same category as the 3170, 
1670, 1260, 1270 or 660.

You can find out if it's supported by the EPSON backend by adding a 
line like this to your epson.conf file

usb 0x4b8 <product id>

You need to substitute <product id> with the actual USB product ID for 
your scanner.

Then try to use one of the Sane frontends (e.g. scanimage, xscanimage, 
xsane, ...) and see if you get any results. If the scanner does not 
return an image, you should try to get capture a log file:

scanimage > /tmp/scan.log

Please send the log file to me.
