I have only one confirmed report about a working Epson Stylus CX-1500. 
It seems that this scanner does not need a firmware file at all. You  
would get an error message and no scanning would be possible at all 
if the scanner needed a firmware file. 

According to the report that I got the scanner works flawlessly. Did 
you try different resolutions? What versions of SANE are you using 
(scanimage --version)?

Thanks for the information!
This is my SANE version
[lhboi at desktop tmp]$ scanimage --version
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.17; backend version 1.0.17

It is stock sane package in Fedora Core 5.

And this is snapscan version
[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of snapscan to 128.
[snapscan] sane_snapscan_init
[snapscan] sane_snapscan_init: Snapscan backend version 1.4.50

I'll try different resolutions and report  the results.

All other resolutions give the same result: only green. Even when scanning in Gray mode, blue and red components are missed.

Do following lines from debug log have any means to this situation?
[snapscan] snapscani_check_device: Is vendor "EPSON" model "EPSON MFP00" a supported scanner?
[snapscan] snapscani_get_model_id(EPSON MFP00, 0, 2)
[snapscan] snapscani_get_model_id: looking up scanner for ID 0x04b8,0x080c.
[snapscan] snapscani_check_device: Autodetected driver: Unknown

The model name is not recognized!
