error 4 is SANE_STATUS_INVAL, indicating that the scanner was unhappy
with your choice of options. try setting the pagewidth and height
before the x and y values, in case order of operations is important.
show us the exact command line you are using.

do you have the buffermode option? try turning that on. does the
windows driver behave this way?

also- can you verify that color scans look correct, and can you tell
the usb productID for this machine?
