Are the objects (essentially) gradients with black that are set to the Blend Mode Screen in Illustrator by any chance?  If so you would need to apply the same Blend Mode in Photoshop.  Otherwise please provide the files or at least meaningful screenshots that include all pertinent Panels.

Are you pasting into an image set in GreyScale mode?  Switch it to RGB.

If you can post a source AI file with the object you are copying, and destinating PSD file where you paste that object that doesn't work, that may be the fastest way to debug the problem.
