Shimano Nexus 7 adjustment

I have had the rear wheel off several times due to a rash of flats and had to adjust my gear setting. Following the directions on Sheldon Brown's web page I matched up the dots while in 4th gear and all works well except......I cannot get the shifter to move into position 7. No big deal really since I rarely touch this gear on my commute but can anyone offer additional insight on adjusting the cable on these hubs. Thanks

Hmmm. I'm wondering if maybe the shifter end of the cable (with the little plug on it) has protruded out of its recepticle space and is jamming when you try to click into the final position.
