Could be many things. can you put the zipped .fla on an ftp or web site for
us to see? Or at least describe how you achieved the rollover effects.

Some possible causes:

Using a button inside a button (a definite no-no);
Multiple instances of the button on the timeline, with the later instances
having their behavior accidentally changed to "graphic" or "movie clip."
Rollover state is achieved by tellTargeting a movie clip that is external
to the button, but the movie clip doesn't have an instance name, or the
instance name got lost when a keyframe was added.
