Default HP Scanner makes everything yellow

Here are some pictures:

A is the original picture, 50% in order to make it fit here.
As you can see only a part of it is in the right colours.

A part of the original scan is the B - with "waves" in it, I have seen
that before and know simply to resize. But you can see the colour
difference better.

What causes the yellowness and how can I fix it?

Seems like one or more channels cut out. Also looks

If you repeat the scan does what looks like a good band
happen in the same place each time?

If the good band stays fixed, what happens when you
move the original on the flatbed (don't worry if some parts
are no longer scanned): does the good band stay
fixed on the flatbed or the original?

It is a HP Scanjet 2400.
