Topic: Images print negative in PDF

Hopefully someone has run across this probelm and knows what to do.

I have a collection of PDFs I created using the PDFWriter plugin in Word 2002. (Acrobat 5.05) On my machine they display and print fine, and on most of the other machines I have tested them on as well. The problem I am having is that some of my users are printing these PDFs and the images I embedded (black and white tiff line art) are printing negative (blacks are white and whites are blacks.) The error doesn't seem to be because of a printer because I have people getting the error with ink jet, laser, postscript and nonpostscript printers; but not everyone. It's strange and I was wondering if anyone has run across this or if there is a way to fix it. Thanks!
