Ever since I upgraded to the newest version of Ubuntu (12.04) I've had several issues with my HP Deskjet 6300 All In One fax/scanner/printer.
The fax and scanner work fine but the printer does not. Most often, I can print the first page of a document but then it freezes into the second page.

Try installing the HPLIP from Ubuntu Software center.
