Landscape Lighting

I had 7 landscape lights in my landscape system. Everything was working fine a week ago. I noticed one of the lights was not working. I replaced the bulb and found that it was still not working. All the other lights were all good and bright. Today I removed the landscape light that was not working from the system. However, I found that since then, all the other lights went very dim (like candlelight). I believe that I connected both ends of the landscaping wite firmly after removing the landscape light that went bad. I am not sure what could have gone wrong.

Thanks.

Thanks for the responses. It is a 12 V. There were two wires at the endpoint. It seems like it was a terminal point. When I connected the 'broken' light back, the 'dimness' went away. It looks like I may need some sort of terminal point if I have to take the light off of the system and I cannot simply connect the wires together.
