I went through a similar problem and never found a solution in time but
it was recommended to take a look at permissions for the printer port
and make sure they are accessible to the cups HP drivers. you may need
to play around with permissions, ownership, and group of the device.
I apologize for being so vague but it's been quite awhile since I try to
make that particular setup work.
