I have a 500d as well, and can vouch for what Donoreo is saying. It really threw me when I first started to use mirror lock up, in that I had to press the remote shutter release once to lock up the mirror, then a second press and hold to open the shutter.
If you are still having problems, try using Live View, which should lock up the mirror and therefore achieve the same thing. If this doesn't work either, I'd suggest it's a problem with the remote.
