My coworker and I have separate computers connected to the same HP printer. When she opened a PDF document on her computer from our shared external hard drive, it appeared to have a yellow background and would print with a yellow background. When I opened the exact same file on my computer it appeared with a white background and printed normally. This happened mainly with PDFs that I had created and saved from Photoshop.
I discovered what the problem was!
She double-clicked PDFs to open the files, and they opened in Microsoft Edge, not Adobe Acrobat. So I went to her computer and tried opening Acrobat first, then using File/Open to open the same PDF -> no yellow background! Microsoft Edge was the PROBLEM. I changed the PDF default on her computer to Adobe Acrobat and problem solved!
Go to Settings, Apps and Features, and Default Apps. Scroll down the list to find PDF. If Microsoft Edge is the default, double-click to choose Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.
I hope this solves your problem, because it’s such an easy fix.
