Not exactly what I had, but it simply looks like your PPD's outdated.
Have you tried fetching a more recent PPD and pointing CUPS to it?

I managed to get my printer working right after installing it in a
Debian machine without a failure. As I plugged it back to my Arch and
ran hp-setup it suddenly got recognized, but hp-setup kept failing.
Installing via the CUPS webinterface helped, the Test Page is fine.
