Can you please take me off your distribution list manually? I get about 30
of these per day. The unsubscribe option below does not seem to be working
fully. Regards John

I think that this issue has nothing to do with (X)SANE. I own a ScanJet 8250
and encountered this problem recently. It appeared to be related to one of
the detectors not working properly. When I followed the advice in:
the problem was resolved.
There is another annoying problem with the Avision backend (I think but am
sure) that remains: it will not allow to use the duplex facility of the
ScanJet 8250. When you put the switch on the scanner to duplex scanning, it
will continue to scan only one side. It works perfectly well when using the
HP software under Windows though... This problem has been reported before,
