It might even be an update of an openSUSE RPM that
makes your scanner no longer work.

When you installed from the ISO the RPMs there are probably
not the newest openSUSE updated RPMs but the RPMs from
the time when openSUSE Leap 42.1 was initially released.

Perhaps later you got the openSUSE update RPMs
and that may have made your scanner no longer work.

Suspicious could be the kernel because canges in recent
kernels had caused some issues regarding USB scanner
communication in sane-backends - but I am not at all
a sufficient USB expert to know the details here.
