The output is green, what ever is scanned through ADF Simplex, using RGB color settings.It seems it has some layer on it. As even if a white page is scanned it appears a uniform green. No lines or distortion in image ouput.

Re: Green layer on scanned image from ADF Simplex
What model of scanner are you using? Is it white light based or RGB LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). Very rarely it may happen that the Red and Blue LEDs are not glowing may be because of loose contact, but this very rare occurence. Try reloading driver software.

The Canon 5010/5020/9080c/7580C etd are duplex scanner (can scan both sides in one go). If you select simplex i.e., only top side, you will get the image straight, unless you have changed the settings in the scanning software. I am assuming you are using CapturePerfect software. Please switch off the rotate option in Capture perfect and the scanner output will be as you see it.
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.
You may be set for front & back (duplex) scanning. Change the setting for front only or simplex. This could be done with check/uncheck boxes, a drop-down menu, or a keyboard shortcut. I believe the standard Kodak settings are via check boxes.
This model is also capable of putting out color & bitonal (black&white) images simultaniously. If that's the case the pages should be separate image files. Uncheck either color or bitonal depending on which you want.
Pls check your color Scan settings. Generally there will be some color difference between the original and scanned Image because, the original is 'reflected light' whereas, the scanned image is a 'source light' on the monitor. The monitor setting can also affect the color output.
Color scanning is a big technology. There are concepts like Hue and intensity, refer to wikipedia for explanation. There is something called source light (your monitor for example) and reflected light (your picture that is being scanned). After scanning properly, say you view on a monitor where the Brightness & Contrast are not proper, you will see the image poorly! To test the scanning scan absolute white and check the output. It should read the values 255,255,255 for RGB (Red, Green & Blue). If the values are 255,255,255 but still the image does not appear white on the monitor, it is monitor setting that is wrong. If the output is not 255,255,255 then CANON service personnel only can help. Any good imaging software will display the RGB values.
CANON uses LED light source and they have fairly long life as compare to scanner bulbs. It is okay if you use a powerful system, but it has limited role as the scanner does all the jobs and it only sends the data to the Comp. May further processing is better withe high performance CPU and large RAM.
This has something to do the brightness chosen. In the manual mode, if you choose a dark output, the output will have tis area also; if you choose, lighter output, it will omit. In the auto scan mode, the scanner decides what is the best output.
