I'm not sure which update did it, but without me doing anything my Epson
V33 is working again now on Ubunbu 17.10.

Title:
  Many 3rd party scanner drivers are broken by a sane change

Status in sane-backends package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  Many scanners can no more be used since sane has changed something:
  The 3rd-party plug-in the vendor provides as .deb package will still
  install. But the scanner is no more recognized.

  Scanners that are affected are(besides others):
   - Epson Perfection V10
   - Epson Perfection V1000
   - Epson WorkForce GT-1500
   - Brother MFC-8510DN
   - Epson Perfection V33

  It is to note that the probability that the scanner manufacturers fix
  things others broke is below 100%.
