I've just done so and the lamp was reset to the ready position!
I saw some errors written to stderr, but the lamp got back home!

Then, after unplugging and replugging the scanner, I was again able to
scan something.

It seems that Debian does not include the umax_pp tool; I've just
reported this missing as a (wishlist) bug:

In the meanwhile, I managed to compile sane-backends from source and
then use the umax_pp executable from inside the tools/ directory, as you
suggested.  And, as I said above, it worked like a charm!

Thank you very much for your kind and quick answer.
You saved my scanner!  ;-)

Bye and thanks again.

 The nano-document series is here!
