Cannot read some PDF files on Playbook...?

Hi

I have downloaded some bus timetables and other travel info which come in pdf files

However some of the pdf docs won't load on my Playbook....... Adobe launches but I just get a black screen with it on a few of the docs.

As I say most of the pdf downloads launch OK except for these strange ones.  They are not large files ........ typically one or two pages only.

Has anyone come across this before

Thanks

Peter

Have you swiped across the screen to see if it opens another page. I generally have not had problems with PDF files. I have had files where the first few pages are blank.

Thanks for that.  

Tried that and I got the following message in of the open pdf files

 

ERROR undefined

OFFENDING COMMAND eexec

 STACK

/quit

-dictionary-

-mark-

 

On another file it was a grey screen and it could not be swiped to the next page

 

Does that mean anything to you ?

Thanks !

Peter

No. Can't help you. Send me the bus schedule files and I will see if I can open them. I will send you a private message with my contact info.
