When trying to print equations in Word 2007 sometimes a page that has both figures/pictures and equations does not print the equation (blank placeholder).  Any ideas?

Lots of suggestions!

If you go to Word, Options, Advanced tab and at the bottom of the list  select the Web Options button, select the Browsers tab and check Allow PNG  as Graphics Format, does that resolve the problem?
 
Try updating your print drivers.

Also - make sure your options are set up:
"In Word 2007, click on Office Button | Word Options | Display |  check the boxes for "Print drawings created in Word" and "Print  background colors and images" | Advanced | scroll down to the  "Show document content" section, check the boxes for "Show  background colors and images in Print Layout view" and "Show  drawings and text boxes on screen", and uncheck the "Show picture  
 placeholders" box | OK. "

I also read where this simple fix works:
"Just change text direction in equations to Left-to-Right!"
