Dear Diego,

Please don't post in HTML.

Can you provide more information on the model and the data? What is the
formula of the model (fixed and random). Type of the variables. In case of
factors: the number of levels. How many observations/groups do you have?

Best regards,

than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say
what the experiment died of. ~ Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher
The plural of anecdote is not data. ~ Roger Brinner
The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not
ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.
