Scanimage reads the command line parameters from left to right.

The source parameter resets some parameters to default values.

Please try this: "scanimage -d pixma:04A91908 --source Flatbed 
--resolution 300 --mode Color >test1".

All Parameters have auto values. You can check them with this command: 
"scanimage -d pixma:04A91908 -A".

You can also use this short form command: "scanimage -d pixma 
--resolution 300 >test1".

If you want to scan b/w letters, you can use the lineart parameter like 
this: "scanimage -d pixma --resolution 300 --mode lineart >test1".
