scanimage returns a broken image

Hi,
i want to use a raspberry pi (Debian) as scan-Server.
For this job I installed SANE and ImageMagick.

If I scan with ...
Bash:
scanimage -p --resolution=25 --mode=Color -l 0 -t 0 -x 210mm -y 297mm >test.pnm
... I will get an unreadable pnm-file. (In the attachments)

Based on the header, I found out that the file is smaller than it should be and I tried to fix this with ...
Bash:
dd if=/dev/zero bs=40000 count=1 >> test.pnm
now I have a pnm-file which I can convert to an image with ...
Bash:
convert test.pnm test.jpg
The problem is that the result does not match the scanned document.
Here is the difference between is and should:
test.jpg


Does someone have any idea how to fix this?


---------------------
Possibly the the result of "scanimage -T" is interesting too:
Code:

G'day @domidodo and welcome :)

I am moving this Thread to Single Board Computers where it may gain better viewing and help.

Good luck
