Odd problem with Google Chrome and PDF eBay postage labels

This is a bit of a weird issue that has affected me over the last couple of days.  I have a few eBay listings and use their service to print pre-addressed Royal Mail postage labels, which are generated as PDF documents.

 

As of a couple of days ago, it just suddenly stopped generating these labels properly in Chrome.  The PDF's only load about the top 1/3rd of the label (showing barcode etc.), but the rest of it, containing the address etc, fails to load (and also fails to print, not just a display issue).  This is not just one eBay label, but any of them using eBay's system.  The issue doesn't seem to affect other PDF's on other sites.

 

I am still able to print them using Firefox on the same PC (but prefer using Chrome).  I am also able to print them using Chrome on my Macbook.

 

I've so far tried clearing cache and temporary files, and used CCleaner to give a deeper cleanout of junk.  That hasn't solved the problem.  Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?

 

Thanks

Don't really know mate. You could try resetting Chrome though. Seems to solve a lot of erroneous errors without having to understand what went wrong.

Sorry I nearly forgot I posted this.  Thanks, I will give a reset a try.  In the meantime have disabled Chrome's PDF viewer and that seems to have solved the problem for now.  The odd thing is, the issue has now spread to my Macbook.  Perhaps an update to Chrome killed it?
