Do you work in an RGB document?

Thes kind of effects use blend modes that do not translate well to CMYK.

Did your PDF version convert to CMYK?

You may want to rasterize the problem objects with the background.

That is what I tried to explain, these kind of blend modes do not convert well to CMYK.

First try to rasterize all the lens flares together with the background instead of each one separately. Than convert to CMYK. 

Use a COPY so you can still modify the original.
