    Screen transparency doesn't knock out black fully in InDesign

      I started experiencing a situation in which the "screen" transparency function doesn't knock out the black background of a logo fully. The black instead of becoming fully transparent shows the background color in a lighter shade.  The "multiply" function however works perfectly.

       

      This is happening whether I am using pixel files such as logo in tiff or a text box with black background and white lettering over a color background. So it isn't about the nature of the object I want to make transparent. This is happening on the computer I use at work but not on other computers. I started experiencing it with CS4 and was hoping that it would disappear when upgrading to CS5 but the problem wasn't resolved.

       

      Been looking around the program in and out to try to understand why but haven't located any reason  yet.
