I have an MB5050 myself and that works pretty well.
Can you please (in a shell) do:
scanimage -L 2> log
and mail the resulting log file?
Some of the most recent Canon scanners no longer support bjnp, butthe
MB2000 is as far as I know of the same generation as my MB5050, so I
expect bjnp till to be supported.
Please check your firewall settings (see man sane-pixma) to be sure
that traffic does not get blocked. There should be no reason to modify
the pixma.conf file, unless you are on WIFI: ome users report problems
See the bjnp-timeout settings in pixma.conf. A single line of
at the beginning of that file should in that case do the trick.
I decided against including that by default as it would cause long
delays for user using other backends
