Is it a conflict with the printer device driver?

Office 2013 have full pdf support, but one way to test could be to install Foxit PDF reader with pdf printer and try print to that.

Another way would be installing a fresh new alternative printer and try print to that.

try update the printer driver by going into printer settings, find the driver section and click the update driver button. (rihtclick printer - printer properties -advanced tab - new driver - try the windows update button a bit in or find the right drivers on the printermakers homepage)

Here is a discussion about safe mode and some guys having similar problems:

Here is general troubleshooting and a device driver solution, a bit old though

You were right it was a driver issue, I had to remove all printers and then re-add the required ones. I did not reinstall the PDF printers (downloaded a different one) and now all is fine.

thanks
