Yes, it is tedious to minimize a document. But one the whole I would
prefer if you do this work instead of hoping that the other do it for
you. Your problem can be reproduce with a more simpler document:

\documentclass[hyperref={bookmarksopen=false,pdfstartview=FitH}
]{beamer}

\hypersetup{
pdfcreator  = pdflatex,
pdfproducer = pdflatex,
pdfpagemode = FullScreen
}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
a
\end{frame}

\end{document}

You have some ps code there. So a package is loading a unsuitable
driver. A look in log-file shows that hyperref loads the driver dvips.
Add the option dvipdfm to the hyperref options.

\documentclass[hyperref={dvipdfm,bookmarksopen=false,pdfstartview=FitH}
]{beamer}
