man sane-plustek 

This alledges that the manufacturer made incompatible devices under the same
product number.  Also the backend has default options when the exact 
parameters are not supplied in the command.  Be sure to read the manpage,
and in the command set every option, never allowing default.  Post the
used if all fails.  The trash returned is really something.  Is it the same size
was expected?
