Hi Ahmad,
I don’t what process you used to save the structures in a single file, so I don’t know what went wrong.  All I can tell from your images is that in the bottom image, some of the copies do not have secondary structure assignments, and that is why they show up as thin “coil” ribbon instead of the wider helix and strand ribbon.  It might be that something is wrong about the format of your single file, or that some of the backbone atoms are missing.  If you don’t think there are missing backbone atoms, you could try command “ksdssp” to reassign helix and strand, but the assignments probably won’t be exactly the same as from the original PDB file.
I hope this helps,
