I put up this plea for help and had no response but have now solved the
problem (without fully diagnosing it, but never mind that!)
My F2280 was working happily both in printing and scanning until some
time in March. I suspect a routine Synaptic Update made an unhelpful
change, although I do not use the scanner often enough to be sure of the
timing, but from about that time the scanner function has gone missing.
Printing has not been affected.
The solution was that I had hplip version 2.8.2 installed and the hplip
website says the minimum version for the F2280 is 2.8.6. I installed
the latest (3.10.2) and all is now well. Mystery is that I had always
had 2.8.2 installed, even when it was working before, so I suspect
something in a routine Synaptic update had upset it.
