What are you printing? Webpages? You list your Specs as iPhone. Are you printing from Windows 10? Can you print regular test pages?

More information would be helpful.

Explain more clearly. If there are several items does it print the headline, then a blank where the text should be, then another headline?

What happens with pictures? I'm wondering if it is just not printing the top of the page.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Some web pages are either set up badly so the headlines are a distinct item and are what is recognized so they print. Sometimes they print the top headings, the side panels, the ads, then maybe the test at the end on the third or fourth page. Sometimes they print in funny placed narrow columns that are hard to read.
Here are a couple of things to try:
High light the areas you want to print and after going to Print, check off "Print Selection".
You can try Control - P to initiate printing of the screen.
If those do not work, open a program called "Snipping Tool" which has been with Windows for a couple of editions now. When you launch the program you select New and the back ground of your screen greys out a little but freezes and does not react to pointer pass-overs. Click on one corner (upper left say) and move the pointer over across and down (lower right) and release the left click and the area is snapped into the snipping tool. To print it best, save it to the desktop and reopen it and it will open in Picture Viewer where you can print it out full page.
I keep the snipping tool always on the Task Bar so it is always a single click away.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
