Some scanners have a hardware lock mechanism. This switch is usually
on the bottom side of the scanner. If it's enabled, the scan head
can't move. It's intended for transporting the scanner to avoid
destroing the scan head.

If this mechanism also exists in your scanner and it's enabled the
scan head will not move even if SANE tries to move it.
