Magic wand won't work on red

I have a picture of a girl in a red dress. Her parents say the dress should be pink. When I try to select the red dress with the Photoshop CS5 magic wand nothing happens. When I select something else that is not red the magic wand works as normal. any ideas?

What do the settings in the menu-bar read? Especially the one for 'tolerance'?

Thank you joey_B. That was the answer. Tolerance was set at 5, I turned it up and everything is fine now. I still have a lot to learn.
