    Could well be a driver issue or it could be that the font in the PDF is not embedded. Check under the Dowent Properties of the PDF to check the latter and check for updated drivers for the printer.

    In order to determine whether or not it's a driver issue print the pdf as image.
    If that works, it's likely going to be a driver issue.
