Assuming the lamp is on.
Tyry uninstalling and re installing software.
If that fails must assume a CCD or associated component failure.
These items are not repairable usually,

Why does the scanned document turn out as completely black?

Check if the light is on, while the scanned is busy by lifting the lid. If it is dark the lamp or the LED's don't burn and if so, I think you have to start saving for a new one.

How to have white background on small documents

All areas outside of the document will be black only. I don't know how you were getting white background.
If you want white background around your scanned image, a) stick the check (in this example) onto a white paper and scan the whole sheet. Ensure double detection is off. b) You can also do this in software, by cropping a larger area outside the scanned image.

There are many options to view the scanned image like Actual size or Fit or Fit vertically or Fit width. The same image will appear different in each case.

When scanning old photo, scanner stretches the image. how do i get it to scan image to same proportion as original?

Open Epson Scan and select Professional mode. Turn off the Auto Thumbnail option. Leave the target size As Original and then do a preview. Once the preveiw is complete in the preview windows draw a marquee around the area you want to scan and select scan.

Hp scanjet 8250. I want to set my scanner to default to PDF when I am trying to email. That is the way we do most of our scanning and right now it defaults to RTF.

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...

Use the E-MAIL button() to scan documents or pictures and insert them in an e-mail message as an attachment. You must have an Internet connection and a supported e-mail application.
1. Place the original face down on the scanner glass or face up in the ADF. If you are scanning two-sided originals from an ADF, slide the DUPLEX switch to two-sided mode.
2.Press the E-MAIL button().A message appears asking if the original is a document or a picture.
3.Select Document or Picture, and click OK.Note:A preview image will not appear when scanning from the ADF. To change this preview setting, see the HP Photo & Imaging software Help.
4. Select the final scan area (the area inside the dotted lines) in the preview image.
5. Make adjustments to the preview image if needed.
6. Click Accept.The final scan area is scanned and your e-mail application is opened. The scanned image is added as an attachment to the e-mail message.
7. The Save As dialog box appears. Type a file name and choose a file type, and click OK.
8. Complete the e-mail as usual.

Dark area on scanner output

you need a new CIS array, or the lamp is going bad. With all due respect buying office equipment on ebay is like shooting craps.

Negative Scanning Problem Using Epson Scan Software

Make sure the rectangular slots at either end of the film frame are not obstructed or covered in any way. When I attempted to scan color negatives I had the same darkness problem in the scanned image. When I cleared those rectangular slots, everything was fine. I hope this helps.

Black area above the scanned image.

If you set Automatic brightness/Contrast this happens. Try manual setting. Adjust different settings and select the best suited for a particular type of drawing. The scanner takes couple of milliseconds to judge the best lighting, by then the paper has moved little. This area appears black. This is easily solvable.
