that's really an unnecessary mess. you shouldn't have mouse handlers attached to your movieclips and mouse handlers for those movieclips also attached to a frame.
1. remove the handler attached to your movieclips.
2. only use the handlers attached to a frame.
3. prefix all your methods with the appropriate movieclip instance name or path/name.
Thanks so much for helping me out. As a relative actionscript beginner please excuse my poor use of actionscript terminology below!
I don't have any script placed on the movie clip itself. The script for the movie clips (that starts with "function resetButtons etc...") is on a separate Actions layer to the movie clips. Is that ok?
The buttons are called"homebutmc", "whatbutmc", etc. and I'm telling them to go to and play frame 68, 100, etc. Frames 68, 100 etc. hold each MC. Do you mean I should I change the frame #s 68, 100 etc. to the MC name instead?
Problem solved -rookie mistake - I had actionscript for the buttons missing on some frames, thus the button states didn't work.
