I'm having this exact problem (but I wasn't able to just comment on the issue because it's been locked)
I have a HP Color LaserJet MFP M283fdw that's wired into the network with an ethernet cable.
It was working with a named device (a Synology NAS), but now it only works if I type in a specific IP address.
This used to work and doesn't now:
This works now, but I'd rather use the named device if the IP address changes.
I am able to access the named device on multiple devices on the network and it works if I use the specific IP
(again, exactly what the post above was commenting on)

Welcome to the HP support community.
I understand that you want to set up a scan to the network folder, I am glad to assist you.
You might have to set up the scan to the Network folder again using the Wizard.

your post suggests that no devices that access can use a name. If that is the case, whatever is acting as your DNS server does not contain a correct routing table. A DNS server provides a conversion from a name to an IP address so that devices can find other devices. Depending on your network that might be your router or a server. Either your primary or secondary DNS entry must be that device. Your other option is to apply static IP addresses to all your devices and use IP address instead of a name when specifying a scan to location.
