It sounds to me as though this is an hplip problem.  The version in CentOS is 
not the latest, and doesn't support recent printers out-of-the-box.  ISTR that 
I had to grab the relevant ppd file from one of my other boxes (or the 
Internet, of course) and feed that to CUPS, after which hplip could see my 
printer and scanner.  (Mine is a PhotoSmart 7180).
