You do not say what operating system you are using, language, output file type etc. U+FFFD is the substitute character when the system has 'unknown' or invalid data type. Often, for example when copying/pasting to a file type which is not Unicode. So, for example, if you write a .csv file without specifically defining you are using Unicode.

More information would help us understand the problem.
