As has been discussed lately on comp.text.tex in connection with the
new tx fonts, it is very likely that dvips 5.86 has a bug in its
partial font loading mechanism.   With the j option (default in
teTeX-1.0), the resulting PS files do not print at all on certain
PS printers.

My guess is that the tx fonts trigger a bug in dvips.
