    Hi lorenzo,
    it looks like this behaviour depends on the firmware version of the Vista T630.

    Please try the following:
    remove sane-backends from your system,
    get sane-backends-1.0.4 source package
    vi backend/Makefile and add to CPPFLAGS = ...

    then compile and install sane-backends

    You now get the advanced options "slow speed" and "smear".
    Try what happens if you enable "slow speed"

    Please tell me the firmware version of your scanner.
