I have a very frustrating daily problem using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC on a Windows 10 PC.
All documents are displayed just fine, but after some hours - typically the next day - parts of pages or whole pages of opened documents are blank and an error message dialog like "Problem reading document (109)" or "There was an error reading a stream" or "Insufficient data for an image" pops up. Why not just open the document again? And why throw away the document in the first place?
This happens with documents on my network where it's easily reproduced, but I'm not sure if I've experienced it with local files. There seems to be no problems with the network otherwise, I've never seen it glitch or act sluggish or or disappear or anything.
Every day when the problem hits me I have to close the documents and open them again, which is super tedious in the new Home/Recent menu and the new worsified Search field. Only one document can be opened at a time, even if many can be selected with the checkboxes. *explodingheadstupid* The program jumps to the opened file, and I need to go to the Home menu manually again, open the next file, and so on.
This makes Acrobat Reader feel like a very unprofessional tool. Anyone with the same problem - or a solution?
As per the issue description mentioned above, you are getting above mentioned error when pdfs are kept open for a while in reader, is that correct?
Could you check if an update is available for reader using "Check for updates" option under "Help" menu, You may also download updates from here: Adobe software and product updates
Reboot the machine after installing update and try again.
Also, Try the troubleshooting steps given in the following help document

This isn't an answer and solves nothing. I pay a lot of money for the full Adobe CC suite, and yet I have to use an aftermarket PDF reader in order to read documents that need more than 10 minutes' time. Come on, Adobe. Since the introduction of CC, you've turned Photoshop into a bloated corpse. Are you doing that with Acrobat, too?
This is supposed to be software as a service, not software as a disservice. Provide a solution to this problem or, better yet, fix it in the next update while breaking something else.
Yeah, I'm disgruntled.
I have a client who is having this problem on multiple computers. We have a cloud team account with the newest Adobe Pro DC installed on the users machines.
There are no updates available, this happens on multiple machines with multiple PDFs. None of the above suggestions have fixed the problem. I cant imagine that they are getting a bunch of corrupt blue prints.
I am sorry for the trouble you had, what is the version of Acrobat Pro DC installed on the user's machine? To identify, please refer to Identify the product and its version for Acrobat and Reader DC and post a screenshot of the version window https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-7043#jive_content_id_How_do_I_attach_a_screenshot
What is the version of the operating system installed? Is it possible to share a sample PDF file which is causing this issue? If yes, please upload the PDF file to Document Cloud storage Adobe Document Cloud choose share file option, generate the link and share the link by direct/private message only.

We're here to help, just need more info.
I can't even upload it to Adobe Document Cloud... error 109
Does it ever happen with files opened from the users own hard drive?
Same issue being experienced by multiple users in our corporate environment. Using Acrobat Pro DC 2019.008.20071 on Windows 10 1803. When viewing 'large' (10's of MB) PDF files from Windows file server (Drive mounted with 'net use'), the PDF file may be viewed normally. However, if the file is left open for a period (e.g. 30 minutes), pages now appear blank. Sometimes this is accompanied with error, 'Insufficient data for an image', or 'There was an error while reading a stream', or sometimes no error at all. Checking the 'Files Open' list in 'Computer Management' application on the file server, it can be seen that the PDF file is no longer open, even thought the client application still has it open. To workaround this issue, our users have to re-open the failed PDF document. Reading the same PDF files from the local disk drive does not suffer the same issue.
This issue has persisted for us across several versions of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
I/we have the exact same problem here in 2020, and it is driving me nuts, as it is timeconsuming and annoying.
I hope there are some fix for this in the near future. But as this treads is a couple of years old, I am not too optimistic :o(
Having the same issue here after hours of editing... can't save the PDF. Major waste of time.
I have the same issue - and did at my previous job as well. Typically after a few hours, and always after gogin to sleep, the document will she the current page but doesn't respond to search attempts and gives one of the above errors and shows blank pages if I scroll. Close and reopen and it's fine. This happens with reader and Acrobat Pro. Frustrating that this issue has been around for so long and no solution's been floated.
