Sometimes experience and insight are adequate substitutes.

Tell us what your code looks like, and maybe we can begin to guess
what happened.
Here's the code in .emacs:
(global-set-key "\C-xcy" 'clipboard-yank)
(global-set-key "\C-xck" 'clipboard-kill-region)
(global-set-key "\C-xcc" 'clipboard-kill-ring-save)

I restarted both emacs and X, and it's still working.
I can copy text from Firefox or a pdf file and paste it into emacs with either Ctrl-y or Ctrl-x c y. I thought the emacs kill ring was different from the X clipboard. I added Ctrl-x c y|k|c because I had been having trouble moving text between emacs and X.
