Scanning on HP Multifunction Devices

On OSX, multifunctional printers such as MF8280CW may display an error message along the lines of:

Cannot scan because of the following:
- Scan type set on the scanner is incorrect
- Scanner is busy
- Error occurred in the scanner
- Scanner is in Sleep mode
Check the scanner status and try again.
Scanner driver will be terminated.
Error code: 2100010

when attempting to scan a document. The workaround is to use the printer's menu and counter-intuitively select Select scan type→Remote scanner (instead of Computer). The printer will display Waiting… and then on OSX any software can used to scan.
