Stumped on remote shutter release and D7000

I'm hoping someone can help me with what must be a simple problem that I can't figure out. Here's the background.

I just returned from an extended vacation to London and the Western Mediterranean, including Venice. While in London, I did some night shooting with my D7000 and used the Zeikos remote cable release with great results. However, when I tried to use the same Zeikos remote in Venice about 10 days later, I was unable to get it to work. I plugged it into the right slot - the only one that will accept it on the bottom left side slot. I tried to set the shutter for speeds varying from 1 to 30 seconds, but when I pressed the button on the Zeikos, nothing happened - nothing. I tried to slide the "lock" on the Zeikos, but it was disengaged. Nothing I did made any difference. I can't imaging what I could have done in the 10 days that changed the camera or settings. I even borrowed another Zeikos cable release from another photographer to check it out afterwards, and that one didn't work either.

Does anyone have any ideas? Is there a setting I could have changed unwittingly making the camera unresponsive to remote shutter release? I've not been able to come up with anything.

Thanks

Randy
