It's magic! Input text fields have disappeared!

Hello all,
got a weird on here. I have a contact form in my site. It is a couple of movie clips deep. I had the form in another fla and copied and pasted the frames into the current project. I can see the input fields on the stage, but they disappear when I test the movie. The cursor show up when you mouse over the field but you cant type any text in it. I’ve lost a wholed day on this adn I give up. Can somebody please help? by the way, i’m using the kirupa php flash tutorial for the form.
