section distored when printed

Am trying to determine a fix for colleague's Word 2002 document. Doc is
portrait orientation except for properly marked and formatted landscape
section. The section contains text, text boxes, and graphics--all properly
formatted as to position, order, etc. The section presents accurately in
Print Layout View and Print Preview, but all elements EXCEPT the text box
BORDERS are distored when printed on our newer printers. It appears that text
and graphics are being distorted to fit a portrait orientation, while the
text box borders are in proper position on the landscaped page. I have tried
everything including manual landscape print settings with scaling on or off
and anchoring all elements to exact positions. The document is not set to
sharing or review. Every time I try to recreate the doc with landscape
section from scratch--even without the graphic elements--I get a distorted
text on this section's printed page. If I PDF the section, it prints
perfectly as viewed. I suspect some conflict owing to an old app and new
printers. Is that a possibility? Have I missed anything? This is driving
me nuts!

Does this happen for this document only? If so, are there any comments in the
document? Word could be preserving space for the so-called comments balloons.
