This device is not supported by the epson backend but by the epson2
backend and should not need an entry in /etc/sane.d/epson2.conf.  By
adding the entry to epson.conf you are forcing the epson backend to
treat it as if supported.  It isn't.

Please disable the epson backend in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf.

Hope this helps,
