Mathematica first creates the graphics object from the Plot command,
it is returned (text below is =Graphics=). Than it converts this
graphics object to postscript and finally renders the postscript
graphics. What system do you use? I know only Windows version, there
should be "Rendering graphics..." notice down the screen while doing
the last step. The creation of the Graphics object probably works
well, you can try to look at it:

To test the conversion to postscript you can look at the cell
expression of the cell with the plot. Try menu command "Show
expression" (shift+ctrl+e). Is there some generated text?

You can send me your notebook with the problem.
