Brother HL-2700CN Prints Nonsense Characters

My Brother HL-2770CN printer has recently started to print nonsense characters whren I print MS Word documents containing symbols for greek alphabet and mathematical characters etc. The text near the symbol character print as blank spaces or as nonsense characters and then the text is resumed OK until the next symbol chgaracter is encountered. The printer used to handle these documents fine until a few weeks ago. I have been unable to find a solution to this problem so wonder if anyone else has experienced the same problem and knows how to fix it?

My netwroked Brother 2700CN prints gibberish pdfs that I download from a partiular webpage. It will print other pdfs. Also, it will print everything if I use a different computer to send it over.

After you click "print", click "advanced" in the bottom left of the print window. THen check the box "Print as image". Hopefully that will do the trick.
