Please test the same issue with scanimage.
(1) search your scanner: 'scanimage -L'
(2) scan via each interface with option '-d', e.g. 'scanimage -d
"pixma:04A91908" > test.pnm' (this is my scanner's usb-id, replace it
with one by one you found in (1)).
If you'll find problems with scanimage, these come from SANE. Please
mention that XSANE is 3rd party software and report problems there.
You can also check the behaviour of your scanner's push buttons with (1)
push any button and (2) 'scanimage -A'.
If you'll have problems here, please enable debug output with 'export
SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=11' and provide the output here. The debug output can
look like this, inlined in the respond from scanimage:

If your push buttons are detected by SANE, you can also use scanbd:
