Picture (Logo) Disappears After Adding to Header

I have searched everywhere for the answer to this, and I have yet to really find any solution, please help!

I am trying to add a picture to the left header for about 10 sheets in a workbook to make them all look consistent in size. (I previously have embedded the picture into the sheet, but if I change the print area, the logo size gets bigger or smaller and does not look consistent across all of the sheets.)

So I got to View->Header/Footer->Custom Header and I click the icon to insert the picture. After I browse for it and insert it (have tried several different formats) it shows up as &[Picture] as expected.

However, once I hit OK or Print Preview it does not show up (occasionally it does, but then disappears shortly thereafter. I have adjusted the margins and tried everything else I can think of.

I have researched this and seen that other people have the same problem, but it does not seem like anyone has come to a solution.

Thanks very much in advance for any insight you can provide...

I know this is super old but since I can't find the solution anywhere I think I found out mine on accident. All you have to do is go to page layout view, click the header and then at the top of the screen uncheck the "Different First Page" box. Hopefully this works for anyone else.
