Probably you should first check if you can use as root: as normal user
many distributions do not give you needed access to the USB devices.
See if as root you can get a result from:
scanimage -L
This should list the scanners that are found by all the backends,
giving as result which backend and the USB address of the scanner and
maybe serial and model.
