I am trying to view this visualforce as a PDF when it simply shows the page titled and remains blank. The page displays fine when viewed in the browser but I have now created a second Custom Button to open up a 2nd Visualforce page that simply lets the user Save a copy of the PDF to related record.

The error simply looks like this; the "pdftest" is the name of the page:

PDF Error page

It only contains a few lines of text:

  <apex:page renderAs="pdf" >
  <!-- Begin Default Content REMOVE THIS -->
  <h1>Congratulations</h1>
  This is your new Page: pdftest
  <!-- End Default Content REMOVE THIS -->
</apex:page>

I am using Jeff Douglas's sample code here but with getContentAsPDF().
