Printing empty PDFs with LaserJet 4000

I have filled out some PDFs and I now need a hard copy. I can see in a PDF viewer I have on a M$ machine that they are filled out perfect, but the font for the filed out fields is in blue, I can't change that. I believe that is just the way PDF forms work.

When I print the PDFs using lp I get an unfilled out PDF form.

I hypothesize it is because the LaserJet 4000 can not print the blue text, so it just skips it and doesn't bother changing it to black. I have tried quite a few drivers with CUPS for the LJ4000 and none of them have corrected my problem.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
