The problem is because Tassimo water tanks have a floating magnet in them which operates the water level switch inside the body. The magnet gets weak over time. Replacement tanks cost too much to be worth the cost. The simple answer is to stick a fridge magnet on the back of the unit (just above the power switch) using blue tack or similar (you can experiment to find the right position). Our unit has been working fine like this for a few years now. :-)
Check the owner's manual and see if there is a reset button. If not then make sure that the cup that holds the grounds is fitting secu rely, If it's not in just right it will not allow the machine to start. These are simple ideas that you've probably tried but I hope they help. Keith1562
Hey I was having this same problem with blinking and I was shaking the tank trying to get it to engage when my husband, who can fix literally anything, discovered that the magnet in the tank has to engage with the read sensor inside the machine. This magnet is what tells the machine that the water is getting too low. Our magnet gets stuck out of place sometimes. He said it is getting weak and we need to replace it. He used another magnet and held it at the back of the machine beside the tank near the magnet to trick it to engage. It really works! Now, I wonder if Tassimo can send me the perfect size little magnet to replace it. HMMM!
I had flashing lights in my braun tassimo and tried all previous solutions Cleaned the barcode reader Seated the water container properly The problem was down to the flosting magnet in the water container (which was floating when filled) The magnet had lost its strength somehow, so i held a strong magnet from from a fish tank cleaner at the back whilst the water container was in and it worked perfect Inside the machine is a sensor which detects the magnet that floats in the water container I am looking for a new magnet and will keep you informed if it worked when i get one Good luck from Ash
The only thing thats comes to mind is the reed switch and the float on the water tank. Check the float make sure the magnet is working, if yes then the reed switch on the inside of the machine is not in the correct position.
My Tassimo was doing the same thing. Defective tank sensor, I taped a small magnet on the back just above the power switch next to the water tank to trick the machine into thinking there is water in the tank. Just make sure there is water in the tank, as the sensor is now fooled on.
there is a float at the side of the machine by the water level, if the float gets stuck the red light will continue to flash even though water is present. Use a magnet on the outside of the machine by the water and float level and raise the float when connected to the magnet and the light will stop flashing red rapidly
(1) No water in tank.
(2) Tank not inserted properly. Try removing tank and then replacing it, making sure that the hook-tab at the back of the tassimo body engages the matching slot at the front of the tank.
(3) Tank not seated properly. Try pressing down on the tank and twisting left or right. If this stops the blinking and allows your drink to brew, at least you know where the problem is. If you have to do this all the time, consider exchanging the unit.
(4) The lights will all also blink if there is residue (coffee, milk, etc) on the bar code reader window. The residue is usually plainly visible. The bar code reader window is a horizontal rectangel directly under where the bar code of the T-Disc sits in the Tassimo. To fix this, just wipe the window clean (no need to scrub), close the lid again and check for blinking.
