I can confirm this problem with 4.00.39-1.
A downgrade 4.00.35-2 solved this issue.

I now pinned the 4.00.35-2 release:
create a cat "/etc/apt/preferences.d/samsung-pin" file with the following content:
(i know that i need not pin all packages, but i thought: "better more than less" ;) )

# by default, increase squeeze-backports' priority
Package: libtiff3-samsungmfp samsungmfp-configurator-qt4 samsungmfp-legacy-parallel samsungmfp-network-legacy samsungmfp-legacy-configurator-qt4 samsungmfp-legacy-driver samsungmfp-driver-pdf-fix samsungmfp-netdiscovery-oldlibc samsungmfp-legacy-lpr samsungmfp-lpr samsungmfp-configurator-data samsungmfp-common samsungmfp-driver-3.00.90 samsungmfp-legacy-netdiscovery-oldlibc samsungmfp-scanner-usblp-fix samsungmfp-driver samsungmfp-driver-4.00.39 samsungmfp-legacy-data samsungmfp-libmfp samsungmfp-parallel samsungmfp-scanner samsungmfp-legacy-netdiscovery samsungmfp-network samsungmfp-driver-3.00.65 samsungmfp-data samsungmfp-legacy-scanner samsungmfp-configurator-qt3 samsungmfp-driver-4.00.35 samsungmfp-legacy-configurator-data samsungmfp-scanner-sane-fix samsungmfp-scanner-sane-fix-multiarch samsungmfp-driver-4.00.36 samsungmfp-data-legacy samsungmfp-netdiscovery samsungmfp-driver-legacy samsungmfp-legacy-configurator-qt3
Pin: version 4.00.35-2
Pin-Priority: 900

2. use apt-get to (re-)install the packages, either via
apt-get -u dist-upgrade or apt-get install samsungmfp-driver samsungmfp-scanner samsungmfp-scanner-usblp-fix samsungmfp-scanner-sane-fix
3. if you're unable to install some of the "-fix" packages, try downloading them via wget and install them manuall:


dpkg -i samsungmfp-*deb

4. if things don't work, try rebooting the system to reset all drivers/usb ports/...

for your reference, my current configuration:

  • Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.6, including backports.
  • Linux Kernel 3.2.0-0.bpo.3-686-pae
  • SANE 1.0.22
  • CUPS 1.4.4
  • Samsung MFP driver 4.00.35

Note: sane-find-scanner does not provide any output, but "scanimage -L" does and "scanimage > scan.pnm" works too.
(I currently am only using the command line for scanning via our intranet server)
