This does not account for your inability to connect to other trackers, just your DHT connections. DHT is an alternative to, and does not involve, any tracker whatever.
When a torrent is created, the maker can choose to disable DHT for that torrent, and this choice cannot be overridden. Many people are discovering why this was a bad idea, with the Demonoid outage. THose torrents that did support DHT, are still continuing, while those that did not, and used only that tracker, stopped in short order.

Which trackers have you tried to connect to?

Are you getting those peer lists from the trackers who are saying, "scrape OK"? If you aren't, this indicates that you are likely trying to download a "dead" torrent -- one which everyone else has lost interest in/is no longer up-or-downloading. Some trackers are very good about pruning these, which would give you an "unrecognized torrent" message from the tracker. Many are not though, and keep dead torrents for a long time. There is nothing you can do with a dead torrent. Perhaps it will wake up someday, if a seeder starts seeding it again, but that seldom happens.
Another possibility in this is that your ISP is blocking access to particular addresses known to be trackers. In order to detect this, use the command-line "ping" or "tracert" utilities, to see if you can reach them at all.

Try finding some recent torrents on The Pirate Bay, IsoHunt,and from mininova, which will use a variety of popular trackers. On Mininova avoid torrents with a small, red capital P to the right of the name, this indicates a private tracker.
Try also using BitComet instead of Âµtorrent and see if DHT works with that.

Lots of different trackers," denis.stalker.h3q.com, tracker.bittorrent.am, tracker.openbittorent.com, tracker.publicbt.com, tracker.piratebay.com, genesis.1337x.org, nemesis.1337x.org all say "connection closed by peer". I am able to get "scrape ok" from "9.rarbg.com, freetorrent.ru, pow7.com, tracker ilibr.com, h33t.com, zen7.ph. The scrape total is higher than it was yesterday so that is cool, but I still always need to use "freetorrent.ru" to begin a torrent or else it is "connection closed by peer" all of the time. And still 0 nodes for DHT.
Some of those trackers have been closed down, mainly the piratebay.

Obtain a recent torrent from TPB and see if you can get DHT working with it. Don't try to do it by IP address, do it by name. Don't try to do it with a torrent you downloaded sometime in the past, get a new torrent today. Then see what DHT says. If it reports, "Not allowed", then get a different torrent.

Since I'm using a different client, I simply decided to implement DHT - it's slow but, at least, I do get some of the downloads to complete... in time (and with lots of patience).

You don't "paste an image" here. You insert an url pointing to the image, from whatever site you've decided to host the image at, using the IMG tag from the toolbar that appears above the editor.
The image is always stored on another site, not on this server. (That fact has bitten us, a couple of times.) However, it also means that you maintain possession and control of it, so we don't get into those issues.
