You should at least get logs of the scanner in use making a low
resolution scan using the USB cable, preferably with this tool:
http://www.pcausa.com/Utilities/UsbSnoop/ or with wireshark if you
don't have an old windows install. There is a small chance that
someone will recognize the protocol used, if Kyocera is actually
re-badging a scanner built by someone else.
