Your problem is caused by compression in the PDF graphics.
If you create your document using jpg graphics and then apply
compression in the creation of the PDF, the compression artifacts cause most non-postscript printers (and some PS
printers as well) to read the figure background as grey. Either use uncompressed graphics in your source files and then compress your PDF, or turn the compression in your PDF settings off. If your source file graphics are already compressed, you aren't gaining much file size reduction by compressing them again anyway.

Hello all,

I am having trouble with .pdf files printing with grey boxes around
certain graphics. I am printing to a HP LaserJet 8150 PCL 5e. I am using
Distiller 5.0 to produce the pdf files from a postscript file. Any ideas
what may be wrong? The files seem to print OK at our outside printer.
