What OCR package are you using? If you have a copy of a different program, try using it. I've had situations here when Omni or ABBYY wouldn't recognize files but the other one would.

Was handed this this a.m. -

Received a pdf that won't run OCR because it says there's renderable
text on the page, but won't read, either - says the page is "blank."

Followed Adobe's advice and saved out as .tiff, then created a .pdf from
the .tiff files, then ran OCR on the newly converted files.

Same problem - won't read b/c pages are "blank."

Thoughts? Advice?
