Did you try priming the pump? This should be described in your user manual.

I need to clean my capresso c1000. i can't find the instructions. i put a cleaning tablet into the ground coffee area, and ran the ground coffee button a few times. is that it?

No, first push the self clean button (hold until lights come on). Then pull the grounds unit and empty it, that will turn off one red light. Fill the water tank. Then drop the tablet. Then hit the ground coffee button. Cycle through and dump the grounds each time the grounds light illuminates.

Pill clean your machine.
Take out the filter for this experiment
Try adjusting your grinder to the full course setting. You will have to make three or four cups before you see the results of the new setting.
If the flow comes back to normal and the light problem goes away the problem was your grinder was set too fine. Replace the filter and try a few more shots. If all the water leaked out of the filter the lights will come on one time until the filter is purged of air and you should be good to go.
If you still have the lights coming on you have some type of internal restriction a technician will have to clear it . We repair Jura Capresso.

Cleaning with tablet

Your water system is clogged with minerals. Try decac first. If that doesn't work you will have to have a pro manualy search for the blockage.

Did it work before this?
Sometimes hard water can build up and cause blockages.
Try mixing hot water and white vinegar (50/50 mix) and try running it through the machine. If this works, run it through a few more times than run cold water through a couple times to get rid of the vinegar.
Good Luck.

Capresso C1000 - Coffee is going into the coffee grounds bin rather then

I had this same problem water going into the grounds disposal chamber, plus all green and red lights flashing. Was told if I could clear the lights to clean the screen and run a tablet cleaning. I was able to clear the lights tried to run the cleaning but it failed again. I have had my machine for over 4 years so instead of sending it back I decided to take it apart. The problem I found is an O-Ring that runs inside of the compression pump chamber failed, if I can find an O-ring that is the same size I believe it will be as good as new.
