Posted Thu Aug 23, 2007, 12:46am Subject: Casadio Instantaneo - adjusting the timer
I've just bought a (hardly) used Casadio Instantaneo. It's a GREAT grinder that has improved my espressoes significantly.
I have one problem regarding adjustment of the timer, though. There are 4 menues in the grinder that you can enter to adjust the timer: Menu 100 and 300 to adjust single shot doses by 1/100 secs and 1/10 secs respectively and 200 and 400 to adjust double shot doses by 1/100 and 1/10 secs.
I'm able to access the 300 and 400 menu by turning on the grinder while holding 1+"plus" buttons (for 300 menu) and 2+"minus" buttons for 400 menu.
The problem is to access the 100 and 200 menu. IT should be as simple as pressing the plus for 100 and minus for 200. But the grinder does not reac at all, when pressing these buttons. To prove that I made this little video. In the video I start up the grinder in the 400 menu, just to verify that the plus and minus buttons work - which they do. Then I let the grinder leave this menu and then I try to access the 100 or 200 menu just by clicking the plus and minus buttons. But no reaction. I've also tried to press and hold the buttons for anything between 0-10 secs. That doesn't help either. In this video from another user it works as I expect it should.
Is the "software" in my grinder different?!? The person I bought the grinder from has made a big effort to help, but he also remember the procedure as it's shown in the second video. The buttons work, but the grinder doesn't react. Why?

It's something wrong with your grinder. I'm able to enter the 200 menu with my Casadio md Instantaneo. Have you cleaned it, when I bought mine it was a lot of coffee oils in it messing with the electrics. A bit late but I hope this will help others.
