Are there brushes or special effects? If so, you need to expand all brushes and outlines before merging anything. AND if you do expend brushes, you need to go to Object>Path>Clean up to delete paths with no fill or outline so you don't get ugly results with the next step.

Then go to your pathfinder and combine the paths... I don't know if in the new Illustrator you have to expand the paths... In the version I use, I select the combine path and hold the option key concurrently so it expands at the same time it combines.

Capish?
