Probably, but w/o knowing which packages you're loading, it's hard for me to tell from here.

When I do:

\hrule height 1pt

The result comes out entirely on the black plate w/ all elements defined in greyscale.

Load packages and add macros test until the error appears, then remove elements until you have a minimal example which causes it.
