When I place images in my indesign file, they show up with noise or black. I have checked the original files, and tried saving them as new files as well. My initial document also has placed images that are previewing correctly. However, post the 200dth page, they are showing up as black or with noise like they are corrupt. I have checked the original files. Please see below screenshot.

Have you tried to place those images to a new document? Which file format you are using in your images. I have experienced same kind of problems with EPS-files. You can also try to change your Display Setting to High Quality.

 Indesign 2020.

The GPU is turned off. it is set to display high quality. I place this .png file into a new indesign document. it appears like this (the pic to the right) the pic on the left is how it should look. This is one reason why i don't like upgrading. it consumes so much time.
