I have just purchased a HP Color Laser 150a printer and connected it through the USB port. However, nothing happens when I try to print.

I could add the printer on CUPS but when I tried HPLIP it did not recognise the printer (checking on the HPLIP webpage, it seems it may not be a supported device)

I am no expert, but this seems to indicate that the printer is being recognised. So where's the breakdown?

That printer is really a rebadged Samsung printer (HP bought the Samsung printer division). You can use the Samsung CLP-315 driver that is integrated into CUPS and works fine as is almost the same printer with another case (works fine printing both color and BW).
