Well, there is your problem, you are running an ancient version of
sane-backends, which does not support this scanner fully. You will
need to upgrade to something more recent. 1.0.25 was the first version
that supported this scanner, but 1.0.27 would be better, as it
contains some fixes. You should see if your distro has some kind of
updated package you could load. If not, you will have to compile from
source, which is more complicated.
