Question about Nespresso Citiz C110
The machine is descaled and I tried to rinse but I can't get any water to flow. Both buttons are still flashing. I held them for the required 3 seconds but nothing happens.
After speaking with Nespresso, I suspect that the previous answers are coincidences rather than solutions. The issue, according to Nespresso (and which I've now confirmed through testing) is that the Citiz tends to overheat when you run this much water through it. You will notice that the blinking lights go from a fast blink to a slower blink when this happens. At this point, you need to simply wait for the machine to cool down - eventually, the lights will switch back to a fast blink, and you can now take it out of descaling mode or run another batch of water through it. Nespresso says this takes about 5 minutes - in my experience, it's closer to 10 (I haven't timed it, but it's slow to cool). So patience is the rule of the day!

I had the same issue, and took it to the repair shop, where the guy did the same thing, just pressed both cup buttons for 3 seconds. It worked. He said the Lungo button had to be pressed a little harder, as it had some connection problem, and thats why it didnt work for me. If you have the same problem, the machine will start buzzing for about half a sec if you press the lungo button while in descaling mode.

I had the same issue. This is what a did:
Turn off the machine
Remove the tray/container and leave it outside
Turn on the machine and this time the power button should be flashing (preheating) then hold both cup buttons for 3 sec and it will be back to normal opertion....
For some reason the sensor needs to read that the tray/container is out of the machine...
