    Blank screen

    tlvee Community Member
      I have been happily using BW on my work computer, but cannot get it working on my laptop. Everything appears to load, the status bar says "done" and the screen is completely blank. I have no problem w/ adobe "share". I'm running xp sp3 with Firefox 3.0 (also 3.1 beta3, which has same problem). I've installed the latest flash and have javascript enabled, and have run out of ideas.
      Thanks,
      Tom

          In follow up, I am also having this problem using IE7.
          I've tried disabling Windows Firewall and McAfee but that doesn't help.

            Hi Tom,

            Sorry to hear you are running into this blank screen issue. We had other reports of this but haven't yet detemined exactly what causes it. It has been resolved in a number of cases, but again, it's not yet clear what fixed it. Please respond to the list of questions below so we can understand your laptop setup and see if it matches the profiles of other folks running into this anomoly. I filled in the details you already provided.

            Operating system - XP sp3
            Browser(s) - IE7 (what exact version please?)
            Flash Player version - http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_15507

            Next please try the following:

            Clear IE cache - clear cookies - close the browser and then reload Buzzword
            Check for security software (e.g., Norton Internet Security) - if yes, please try with it disabled.

            Has Buzzword ever worked on this machine?
            Please try these URLS:
            https://www.buzzword.com
            https://www.buzzword.acrobat.com
            https://www.acrobat.com


            From https://www.acrobat.com:
            sign in to Buzzword - result?
            sign in to Share - result?

            if Share loads, try moving to Buzzword by clicking on the New icon at the top right (little pencil icon)


            One other thing to confirm - pleae right-click body of the blank page to see if flash player context menu shows

            And finally, can you please try using Firefox to see if the result is the same - thanks.

            regards,
            Peter Watson

              Thanks for your reply, Peter. Here are some answers...
              The problem exists in IE (7.0.5730.11) as well as Firefox 3.0.7 and 3.1 beta3.
              I tried buzzword.com and buzzword.acrobat.com without any luck (after emptying cache, etc and turning off McAfee).
              I can bring up acrobat.com and sign into share successfully. When I try to go to BW from there... no luck. (also no luck signing into BW from the acrobat.com screen.)
              Flash is 10.0.22.87

              Interestingly, when I right-click the black screen to bring up the flash menu, and click settings, it freezes with the settings menu displayed. That's about the only clue I can give you.

              BW used to work on the laptop, but its been some months. (Perhaps when you switched to SSL?) I'm not aware of any big changes to my system.

              Best,
              Tom

                Tom,

                Thanks for the details. Can you please try installed the debug flash player 10 to see if we can catch some exception that is failing silently in the standard player.

                First please run the latest uninstaller:
                http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player.exe

                Here's the links for the debug players:
                IE - http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/10/flashplayer_10_ax_debug.exe
                FF - http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/10/flashplayer_10_plugin_debug.exe

                Please let us know if that provides any additional info.

                  This thread referred me here.

                  regarding the url's:
                  https://www.buzzword.com: blank screen - get flash menu with right click
                  https://www.acrobat.com: blank screen - get flash menu with right click
                  https://www.buzzword.acrobat.com -
                  Error: "www.buzzword.acrobat.com uses an invalid security certificate.
                  The certificate is only valid for www.adobe.com
                  (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)"

                  I'm on a Mac OS X 10.5.6 PowerMac G5 (non-intel) Firefox 3.01 and Safari 4

                  Hope this helps.

                    Hi,

                    Thanks for posting the details of your findings. Can you please try running the debug player and see if you get any different results.

                    On additional thing for both of you to try is installing the FireFox addon http://getfirebug.com/
                    This will allow you to look at all the files being loaded and perhaps we'll see what is failing.

                    Once it's installed you see a little bug icon in the lower right corner, click it and you'll see the configuration page.
                    click on the NET option and then click the checkbox "Net Support for Network monitoring."
                    Now load http://buzzword.com and let me know what the result is.

                    OR (coming up with ideas as I'm going here...) you can clear out the browser cache and then request buzzword - then look in the browser cache folder and take a screen shot of all the files - I'll compare with a good load and see if something obvious is missing.

                    thanks - this issue has been very difficult to nail down, we have not been able to reproduce it in house. So any efforts you take to help track it down are greatly appriciated.

                      Here's the result from running the debugger in IE. Hope it helps.

                        This is now working for me in both IE7 and FF3.1(beta 3)!
                        Was anything changed at your end?
                        Thanks,

                          Hi Tom,

                          Thanks for the follow-up, I'm glad to hear it's working for you now. Thanks for the debug player dump, that's at least a clue for us to work with in diagnosing this issue.

                            Ok, my previous post needs a slight correction. I do have an Intel PowerMac (at work). I'm still getting the blank screen. At home running Tiger 10.4.? on a Non-Intel PowerMac G5 it works fine.

                            I'll try that debug firefox extension and post it.

                                Ok... that text was ugly.
                                Here are a couple of screen grabs of the firebug results for acrobat.com:
                                http://i40.tinypic.com/28chlki.jpg
                                http://i41.tinypic.com/2m3prba.jpg (with the last entry expanded, just guessing since that's where it 'stalls'...)

                                Hope this helps.

                                  Hi Matt,

                                  Thanks for posting the details - from the Buzzword attempt, is Buzzword.swf the last item to load?

                                  Did you have a chance to try with the debug player? I'm curious if you'll have same result as Tom posted in this thread.

                                  My colleague also ran into this problem with his home Mac and a reboot cleared it up for him. It's a lame tech support suggestion, but can you please try it and let me know the result - thanks.

                                    The debug wouldn't work... it's an exe file.
                                    Yep, reboot every day.

                                    Matt

                                        What do I do with the plugin and the .xpt file?
                                        (It didn't come with a read me file.)

                                        ps... and yes, Buzzword was the last item to load.

                                          I too have the blank screen problem.  I am desperate to get on Buzzword, but no luck.  I have unloaded and reloaded Flashplayer, emptied cache, etc., but nothing works.  Can you please help?  Has anything been discovered since the last post in March?  Thanks for your help!

                                            I rebooted after reinstall of Flash, and here is the error message I got when I tried to get on www.buzzword.com:

                                            Thanks!

                                              Hello,

                                               

                                              I'm so sorry you're having trouble. Someone here has seen this before when Flash is corrupted during the installation. We recommend that you try to uninstall and reinstall Flash one more time.

                                               

                                              Here is where you can find instructions on how to accomplish the uninstall:

                                              Please respond and let us know if this doesn't help.

                                               

                                              Best,

                                                I did the uninstall/reinstall step yesterday twice after reading this forum.  I did it again just now, following your link to uninstall, etc.  It still does not work, the screen is blank and I cannot get to Buzzword from the share or create a pdf screen.  It is so strange.  I can get on it at home, no problem.

                                                 

                                                Anyway, please advise what I should do next.

                                                 

                                                Thanks for your help!

                                                  If it's a problem that you're having exclusively at work, it maybe an issue with your company's security policies. Please have a look at this thread:

                                                  Can you contact your IT department and find out if it could be a proxy issue?

                                                    We are just a small office, no IT department.  We are just independently online via comcast cable, just like I am at home.  Next idea?

                                                      Ok, I'm so sorry about this, but the next idea is to wait til Monday when I can have a certain engineer from the Buzzword team take a look. Have a great weekend and you'll hear from us on Monday!

                                                          Still waiting to hear on this!

                                                           

                                                          Here is the reason I need Buzzword.  Perhaps you have another idea!

                                                           

                                                          I use Acrobat to convert a Word file to pdf.  However, it does not convert line-for-line, and makes some things (like headers) appear goofy.  Since this is for a big proposal I am doing, I really need the pdf to be perfect.  Someone on this forum said I needed to upload my proposal to Buzzword and then make a pdf.  Is there another way????

                                                           

                                                          Thanks for any help you can give me.  This proposal is due Tuesday and I am scrambling!

                                                            After uninstall/reinstall do you continue to get the debug exception about the local object?

                                                             

                                                            Considering that you are scrambling - I suggest you use your home machine to try importing the file into Buzzword and exporting to PDF to see the result.  If Acrobat is having problems with the header conversion, Buzzword may have similar issues.

                                                            Are you able to manually modify the headers in Acrobat after conversion?

                                                              Buzzword used for translations and teaching and it has been working well, by well I mean within the limits imposed by my knowledge of Acrobat and my requirements.

                                                              Recently, I scanned (Canon Pixma) a sheet of text and saved it as 'tiff'.

                                                              This was then run through with Omnipage SE 4 (included with the scanner software) and after adjustments it was saved to MS WORD 2007 in rtf format.

                                                              When importing to buzzword it failed to open , hence title 'blank screen',.

                                                               

                                                              Re-imported after changing the format to DOCX but the same result.

                                                               

                                                              Scanned a new and different page and carried out the same actions all to no avail.

                                                               

                                                              I can import .doc format letters as sent to me by e-mail.

                                                               

                                                              As it is a probability that scanning and converting will form a large part of my work in the future can you please help as my first expenditure will be for an upgrade of OmniPage - and that is a costly item.

                                                                                  Can you please try right clicking on the blank page and select settings in the flash player context menu.  Then click on the little folder icon at the bottom center and let me know what the Local Storage value is set to - it should be 100 KB by default.
