Several possibilities: (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.

    What if my hook-tab broke off and super glue just isn't strong enough...

I had this problem, all lights flashing and nothing happening. Although the float in the water tank seemed OK popping up and down, I took it out and broke it open to find the magnet had corroded due to water leaking in. I placed one of my kids' magnets over the part of the machine that lined up with where the float would be and the lights stopped flashing! So I took a hammer to the magnet so I had just a small piece and wedged it in between the water tank and machine. Works perfect now. You could fashion something else or replace the float if you can get hold of one but this way works fine. I refill my tank using a jug so I don't have to fiddle about with the magnet when trying to put the tank back.

Why all the lights from Braun tassimo coffee machine flash?


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.

Problem with Braun Tassimo Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker: all the lights are flashing and does not working. bar code reader are clean, somehow the water is not going throw on the machine


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...

When I turn on my Tassimo Coffee maker, the refill water light just flashes, and it won't brew. What can I do? I have tried re-inserting the water tank, cleaning off the barcode sensor, twisting the tank...


I ran into the same problem myself. One possibility is this: Follow this sequence: 1) With the top up and the disk NOT engaged, turn the main power on. 2) Put the disk in and lock the top down. At this time, the cup logo shouls flash once and stay on. 3) Push the large round button once and the cup logo will flash and the brewing should start.
I had a few things out of sequence at first and it was frustrating me as well. I hope this helps!!
