I tried the procedure below with my fingers crossed. and it worked. Thanks for the replys.
Unplug your machine, keep the cord near the power socket and hold it with one hand. Press Left + Menu + Right and plug the machine in. The LCD should stay off, or flash blue and then turn off. Press brew in addition to the other keys. Keep holding these down for the next step.
Reach around the unit with your hand still on the buttons and press the on/off switch on the back of the unit. The unit should automatically start filling the reservoir and then start brewing a cup of coffee. If it does not start, press brew immediately after the screen comes on.
