Data Connect (ed) Image off-scale Print Problem

Here's another Data Connect Image Printing problem.

I have an Aerial image that I bought in via Data Connect.  It's been working well for a while.  Suddenly the next time I go to Print, either to the plotter, DWF or PDF, for some reason the entire Image is thrown to the northwest corner of the viewport at a miniscule scale!  The image is fine on-screen, until you print or even do a print preview!  HELP!

 

I tried disconnecting and reconnecting, did an audit before I reconnected, deleted all my Cache files, but to no avail!  This is  not the first time this has happened, but the last time it did, disconnecting, doing an audit, and deleting  the Cache files before reconnected appeared to solve the problem.  But this time (just when we upgraded to Map 3D 2012), it didn't help.

 

Anyone?

 

Thanks.

Wow, another weird workaround.

Apparently, it has something to do with the Viewport?  Can a Vewport get corrupted?

But anyway, for some reason, when I made a new viewport, set it to the same layer settings & scale as the old one, deleted the old viewport and replaced it with the new one, this appears to have fixed the problem.

 

I guess my question is - how does the Vewport become corrupt?

 

I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this.

 

Thanks.
