Requesting help to read a chinese pdf file on my prs-700

Hi! I first asked for help on the Sony reader forum on reading my chinese pdf file. However, it seems like others can't read it either. Hope you can shed some light on why I just get the cover page image, followed by lots of blank pages.

Here's what I've tried so far (and Wetdogeared has had similar experience):

- transfer original directly using calibre
> blank pages

- convert to lrf using calibre
> garbage characters

[trying to get embedded fonts into the pdf]
- open original using apple preview and save as pdf
> blank pages
- open original using apple preview and save as pdf-x
> blank pages

[trying firmware hack to recognise cjk fonts]
- apply cjk font firmware flash as described in Anyway to make 700 read Chinese text?, then upload original, saved-as pdf and saved-as pdf-x
> blank pages

- copy and paste contents of pdf into text file.
> works so the firmware flash was successful, but unsatisfactory as formatting is lost.

Appreciate any pointers to getting the text in the pdf to display on my prs-700, and thanks in advance!
