I think your using OS X LIon 10.7. if that is true you should upgrade to most recent version os x lion 10.7.2 which might resolve your trouble.Do let me know if you have any other trouble

Follow this steps

Code:
  • On the Time Machine Preferences window, click the Options button.
  • If you're backing-up to an external HD, eject, disconnect, and power it off for a few moments, then reconnect it.
  • Remove the file /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine.
  • You may have to navigate to it; a Spotlight search won’t show it, and a Finder search won’t, either, unless you include System Files.
  • Go back into Time Machine Preferences, re-select the drive, re-enter any exclusions and other options you noted in step 1.
  • 120-second countdown to a backup should appear. If you close the window, it should begin immediately.

In my knowledge (and with all due respect to Pondini) Time machine has never been reliable sufficient to warrant relying on it as a sole backup method, admittedly very few method are (maybe none) so always have option.

I'll step aside for Pondini to notify you better.
