If you continue to get this kind of error after restarting the computer, you may need to update the scanner's device drivers or reinstall the included software. You should also make sure only one program or application is attempting to use the scanner by closing all but the one program you are trying use with the scanner. One last note - always either let the program you are scanning to operate the scanner or let the scanner invoke its default application by pressing the scan, fax or copy buttons on the scanner. Do not for instance try and scan an image into a running program that initiates the scanning process itself while also invoking a scan from the scanner's control panel. The two operations will conflict.
I have four Nikons we use for commercial scanning. As you've seen the MA21 is a simple device that can hardly fail. There are two prongs that hold the slide down against the metal slider that after scanning ejects the slide. If you pull the MA21 out and put a slide in you can see if there is any undue play. Even if the prongs have worked loose an upright unit should function fairly well. I would suggest the cause of your issue is elsewhere and we've had this from time to time. I would change the USB port the scanner is connected to, maybe swap the cable too, reset / restart the scanner and (from my experience) the problem at some point will go away.
If you are viewing your HP printer from your desktop, you probably got this message under Scan > Scan to computer > webscan.
So, to solve the problem, go to Settings > Security > Administrator Settings, and enable (checkmark) the box next to Webscan, and click Apply. If it saves successfully you will now be able to use Webscan.

Clean the photo you want to scan. If you have canned air handy, blow dust and lint off the surface of the picture (not recommended for fragile photographs).
Fire up your computer and Multi-function printer. Check your connections and look the printer over, cleaning the scanning surface and the underside of the document lid.
Position the photograph face-down on the scanning surface. The alignment of your photo can be corrected in the editing process, but you can save yourself a step if you do this by hand, using the guides on the edges of the scanning area.
Shut the lid. Be careful to not disturb the picture's alignment when closing the lid.
Set the scan resolution. Increasing the dpi (dots per inch) count produces a clearer and sharper image and dramatically increases the file size.
Click the scan button on the software interface or push the button on the face of the printer. A preview of your scan should appear on your computer monitor.
Inspect the preview for any correctible flaws. If you need to start the scan over to fix something that went wrong, remember to label each scan of the same picture with a different name so you can sort through them quickly.
Choose the best version and save it to your computer's hard drive
Have you considered simply scanning from within Adobe Acrobat or similar software that produces .pdf and then use the email feature within Acrobat?
As I look over the HP User Manual, I can't see any method to set the default output. It simply says...
