Trying to use a nice shiny new Epson SX515W printer/scanner/copier device
from an Ubuntu 9.10 64bit laptop:

$ scanimage -V
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.20; backend version 1.0.20
$ scanimage -L
device `epson2:' is a Epson PID flatbed scanner
$ scanimage -T
scanimage: scanning image of size 632x877 pixels at 1 bits/pixel
scanimage: acquiring gray frame, 1 bits/sample
scanimage: reading one scanline, 79 bytes...	FAIL Error: Error during
device I/O
(SX515W LCD shows 'Scanning' but device is hung and needs to be powered off)

Any suggestions how to proceed gratefully received...

Thanks - John
