Samsung Xpress M2885Fw scanner lost after Ubuntu upgrade to 18.04 LTS

HP Recommended
Samsung Xpress M2885Fw
Linux

I had no problems along Ubuntu 16.04LTS, till I upgrade my laptop OS 16.04 to 18.04.

 

All went fine till I need to use my Wireless multipurpose Samsung Xpress M2885Fw printer. Printing was ok after I install 'Samsung Linux Print and Scan V1.00.39_01.17' drivers package. But, scanner was dead, no can do nothing. Not working with any scanner app Xsane, skanlite, simple scan,,, none.

 

I check scanner with 'sane-find-scanner',,, on wireless connection cannot find nothing but, pluged in usb it did find usb scanner;
<found USB scanner (vendor=0x04e8 [Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.], product=0x346a [M288x Series]) at libusb:002:003
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.>

 

OK, so I try scanimage -L;
<No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).>

Help. What next?
