Hi Patrick,

Please scan all scan options (color, grayscale, lineart, 75...600 dpi)
from flatbed.

Then test the document feeder with your preferred settings (e.g. A4, 300
dpi) and the whole sheet size. With a single sheet and multiple sheets.
At least test duplex scanning from ADF, single sheet and multiple sheets.

I'm getting the best ADF scan results with gscan2pdf (I really never got
best results using scanimage or xsane). For scanning single sheets from
flatbed or ADF (one side only) you can use your favorite frontend, e.g.

If you might have problems, please test also connected with USB only.

Many thanks for report.
