I have the same problem this morning.
For me the problem appeared since I installed the lastest drivers of a Konica Milnolta BizHub printer.
- Remove White Background s a fiunctionnality that you can remove from the Printer Driver.
Go to 'Printing Preferences / Printing Default'
Go to the Tab 'Others'
uncheck ... the option Remove White Backgroung
in may case I also have 'Excel Job Control'
