For testing use the plain command line tool "scanimage", see

Do you have resmgr updated too?

As normal user use
/sbin/resmgr list
to see which access resmgr allows.
You should get a line like
rw-- usb:vendor=0x04b8,product=0x0103

If not, I have no idea what goes wrong in your case.

You may also try one of the alternatives instead of resmgr, see
the section "libusb + resmgr + PAM" at the bottom.
