I am positive that we can get your scanner running.

You only need one of these lines: Either the first one or the
second one. I would remove the second line and just leave the
"scsi EPSON" line in there.

Can you please try the same with a debug level of 128. This will be
very verbose, the software will report every byte that is communicated
between the scanner and the backend, but because you don't get to actually
scan it should not be too bad.
Please send this file to me and not to the mailing list. I don't think
everybody on this lists appreciates to receive tons of useless data (for
most people at least).

The scanner is not one of the newer models, so it probably never got
tested in the SCSI version. That the parport version does work is at
least a good indication that it should work with the SCSI version.
