I tried the following (on my Stata 10.0/MP; last updated 15 Oct 2007):

sysuse auto
scatter mpg price
gr export png_test.png

Afterwards I used the MS Paint (Version 5.1 Build 2600; MS XP Pro
ServPack 2) to display the png. Everything looked as expected. Maybe
it is not the "png"-file that is broken but perhaps the software that
you use to display it?

Regards
Sebastian
