The OS on my HP6500Plus printer hangs every few hours, requiring printer restart.

This simple to describe and very annoying.
This is not at all due to my PC. It happens even without a PC.

it looks like a bad, or dying printer
in that case, have it serviced, or repalced

I'm sorry, I had it backward. it seems to hang ONLY when the PC is plugged in. The PC is running Kubuntu 12.04 OS. So far I have only had it connected by USB. I will test it on wireless rather than USB. I will also do the reset.

@nobus: Let's try a few thing before I give up on it.

Thanks for your help, but it seems to be working wirelessly with no problems, which is an acceptable workaround for me.
