I don't have one of these printers nor do I have this software on any 
of my systems, so my suggestions are going to be generic.

What errors do you see after you enter the commands?  The error 
message may indicate what the problem is.

Are you preceding the commands with "sudo"?  You shouldn't be able to 
stop/start these services without root priviledges.

Do these files actually exist on your system?  What do you get when 
you enter "ls /etc/init.d/hplip" and "ls /etc/init.d/cups"?  Perhaps 
you meant "cupsys" instead of "cups".  Are you sure the software you 
compiled and installed actually put these files into /etc/init.d?
