Will Only Scan Color and single sided

Once I had a similar problem with CapturePerfect 2.0. No amount of setting will change the scan output. I hit the default option and then changed to the setting I wanted. It worked. May be there is a bug in the Scanning software.

Red images when I scan...

That means, your scanner lens are not reflecting images properly so
you need to clean ADF kits and Glasses of Lens.
i highly recommend not to mess up with your scanner if you are not aware of those all parts and if you are just open up scanner glass cover and clean those all ADF kits otherwise better getting help of a printer Tech.
Good luck
and rate all answers.

Scanned image only prints in black and white

it's tricky / annoying:

you have a preview ...
you have some of the (3) images checked
but also you have some of these images selected (blue outline)

when you select (I don't mean the checking) an image you'll have to set the scanning params
again - or check them ...

if you select an image, and then set the params (like "color"), your scanned image will be in color

also resolution is the same way ..
especially after crating preview .. it'll be set to 300 Dpi
so after seecting one for scanning - check the resolution too :)

Gray backround

Does your scanner software give the option to choose different modes...grayscale, color, black & white?? This sounds like it's scanning in grayscale....if you can change it to black & white, the background should remain white.

Grayblue Background on scans

A color scan will give real output as it is. If the background is grey, the output will also be grey. If you select 256 Color output, there may be small change in color, as compared to the original. If you select grey output, all colors will be converted to Grey. If these files are converted to PDF, it will be same, except in ODF format.

If you select B&W you can save the file in TIFF format. Unlike grey or color, each pixel can be either black or white only. To scan in black and white you must select right brightness. By doing os you can eliminate background (technically noise) and capture foreground(data)

Documents scanned as 256 grey scale/TIFF show up as black pages.

Grey as you know is different shades of black. Uncompressed TIF can store this information. Compressed TIFF is not designed for this. Compressed TIFF is for blck & white only. Try JPG option. JPG can compress Color & Grey. For pure black & white chose TIFF compression.
