IT sounds like your try/except is masking the error.
Its usually a good idea to NOT Use try/except when developing your
code, then go back and put it in when the basics are working. That way
Pythons own exception handling will catch the error, force a break and
print the stacktrace whoich helps identify the problem.

One technique is to simply call raise within each exception block,
then comment out the raise lines when you no longer need them.
