Default Symbols in object box

In one of three computers the letters in an object box just show symbols.
They all had the same install of office 2016 pro 64 bit using powerpoint.


Now the broken office is office 365 32 bit 2016

I have tried to repair, reinstall, change from office pro 2016 64 bit to office 365 32bit 2016 and change the computer keyboard and language.
Nothing works.

In the broken office 2016 powerpoint slide show


In the correctly working office 2016

maybe it's the font? I think you need to install it on that broken one.

As Hani says it sounds like a font problem. Make sure Cambria Math is present and it works.

Cambria Math is registered and working in all of office.
I reset all the fonts to their defaults, but no change.

Any other ideas ?

In this case, convert it to an image to resolve this problem.

Not sure how to do that.
Beside, I'm not making the equations, just trying to view them. (Student, not teacher)
