Read www.project-sane.org/README.linux,

Check your hotplug setup
check (path can be different) /etc/hotplug/usb/libsane.usermap for
presence or you scanner vid and pid.

check your plustek.conf file (for example etc/sane.d/plustek.conf)

sane-find-scanner -v -v  first check if scanner is found.


check error log
