The printer is not in the supported list.http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html
The second reason is that it is only sopported over an USB connection.

Wi-fi printer connects but scanner does not?

Hi

I had similar problems in that linux could see one scanner but not the other. I downloaded Vuescan and this solved all the problems. All scanners seen and all functions available. I think it would be worth trying.

Hope this helps1
