Please read this if your red descaling light won't turn off: Key is to follow directions. When you fill the tank with water to descale add 500 cc - no more. The machine "knows" that the cycle ends when water runs out. Once water runs out the red light will turn off. Continue with cleaning the tank and running a cleaning cycle. The red light is gone and you are good to go.

Just had the same problem. The coffee maker was stuck in the red lights on mode. Solution: Think like a German engineer who over-engineered the product. I pretended that there wasn't a red light. Put a T-cup in an started to make a cup in the normal fashion. The Tossimo made the cup but didn't finish before displaying the red light again. I pressed the start button as if I was starting the cup again, let it drip, ten pressed the start button before it had a chance to finish. This got it out of the red lights on mode and back to normal. There's a reason why the Germans lost both World Wars.

The float that detects the water level might need freeing up.

Or, assuming detachable water container, ensure that it is seated fully. Lift it up a bit and guide it down firmly.

If it's not that, try unplugging the machine for about 5 mins. and see if it resets to normal operation.

prepare machine for use first.
half-fill water tank, switch on unit and insert yellow TDisk (service disc) barcode down. Close the locking unit securely loud click, press green light repeat these steps 3 times. After that you will have the stand by orange/amber. Remove the Service Disc and store in the recess behind the water tank, Insert a Coffee Disc, close the brewing unit with click and green light should be on. press and it should work.If not go to shop where pruchased. Warranty.

The water tank at the rear must make a proper seal. Make sure it is clean and lubricate with Vaseline. The cup tray also catches drips so remove it and empty any water into the sink.

I have the same problem. It works for one coffee after it's been switched off for an hour or two.
I calle Tassimo and they are sending out a new one!

at the above link you will find tassimo manuals
and yes you do need the yellow disc as it has the right bar codes for the descale cycle.
If the manual for the model you have is not available, just read one of the manuals descale sections to refresh your memory, I know I forget how in between descaling sessions

the unit needs to be descaled. order the clean tablets from Tassimo and follow the steps as printed in your owners manual as an alternative you can use any good quality espresso cleaner but DO NOT USE VINEGAR as this could damage the boiler...

unplug unit and throughly clean unit, especially the bar code reader window. Take apart the piercing nipple assembly and make sure it is not clogged either. Use the cleaning disk and descale the unit quarterly as this prevents build ups in the brewing system

I found that my local appliance parts place (Reliable Parts) had them for about $7 each which was quite a bit less than ebay sellers and direct from Tassimo.
(Make sure yours is not hiding in its slot on the back of the machine.)_

I have the same problem, I have been totally unable to clean the fog completely, instead I rub a tiny bit of cooking oil on it and it clears and will read barcodes again. Only a short term fix though.
