Weird Problem - One Tree Won't Come On

Here is my situation. I have 30 mini trees with 3 colors of lights on each one. All of the the trees and colors work except for one. I have 2 strings of 50ct red LED's from CDI on this tree and these lights won't work on any channel on the controller and the controller is new this year. When I plug them directly into an outlet they work fine, they just won't work when plugged into the controller. I have tried resetting the controller, changing dimming curves and every channel on the controller and this one color won't turn on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are they plugged in directly to the controller or via an extension cord? if it is an extension cord start there might be the problem.

Well I might be all wet behind the ears but This is one of those screwy problems that might have a screwy fix. In the plug is a sliding door that gives you access to the fuses. Open the door and use a small like pocket screwdriver and give the silver caps of the fuses a little push and see if they are fully seated. Here is the screwy thinking behind this request. The times that the string worked with a extension cord the socket is made differently than the sockets on the dongles. Maybe just a bit difference in spacing of the recepticle thus causing a different pressure on the spades of the plug, causing contact to be made or not depending on the socket.
