Gone? What are you coping to the clipboard? Did you make a selection open an image select all copy merge it to the clipboard and close the image file. What is gone? Was there a selection did copy work or was it unavailable. You can not paste it copy did not work. Post your action...
It's likely that you recorded the 'Copy' as part of the action. So now when you play the action it is copying nothing and replacing what was originally in the clipboard. Try removing the Copy element from the action or re-record the action, making sure to omit the copy stage.

It would be best to upload your Actions .ATN file to a files sharing site and post a link to it. Far better then than a silent cinema.
