LEDM means Low End Data Model, is also a fax protocol,
and in this hplip update they added LEDM ADF scanning
(ADF = automatic document feed) and LEDM wireless support.

For your issues you should report this directly to hplip developers:

 From a short google search it seems for some others with
a recent enough hplip version the printer seems to work,
common problem seems to be the scanner.

Did you check that the printer itself prints a testpage correct
and not that maybe the ink cardridge is dried in?
