The scan image you have above could be caused by a few different issues but the number one is a power issue. Make sure that the printer is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. The printer does not share power well and pulls it in large amounts - when it can't get it it throws little power fits and sometimes will not turn on at all. Try another wall outlet and see if you can get it to power on and do a copy. Does the image look any better?
If this does not solve the issue then it may be that your scanner bulb is going and therefore not illuminating the image properly. Call hp and see if they have any upgrade units available - usually refurbished but they come with a 1 yr warranty and are significantly cheaper than buying a new unit from the store. They will also take your unit and pay to have it returned to go to an environmental recycling facility.
