    Have you tried to restore factory settings in thermomix?

    Added after 2 [minutes]:

    Did you have any "buttons" with books before buying Cook-Key?
    If so, check if they are causing the same problem.
    If not, the problem is with Cook-Key.
    It's best to give a warranty if you still have one, you can't do anything about it.
    Well, unless factory reset helps.

    I did a factory reset but it did nothing.
    I had the Cook-Key right away and I didn't hear about any "buttons" unfortunately.

    I have exactly the same problem with the cook-key. Restarting TM5 did not help.
    I have two regular recipe pills and they work fine, so it's definitely the cook-key's fault.
    Has it been possible to establish what is the cause of such behavior?

    Not yet.
    He will go to the site. However, I can't handle myself.

    I have the same problem today, what could be the reason? It's no coincidence that this is happening to many users at the same time

    at 99% I'm sure you get this problem after turning on the update.
    I have had such a problem before and the service stated that either "cleaning" this dzyndzle, or a damaged motherboard.
    Fortunately, they cleaned for PLN 100 and it worked ...... until the next update, I think

    Well, after the software update, but now it does not read this key at all, the device rejects it at all, so it is not possible to clean it yourself ...

    Anyway, there is probably no service without the service ....

    Added after 12 [minutes]:

    Now I was talking to the service in Krakow and the nice lady insists that the fault lies with the power supply or the motherboard.
    A bit strange, because you can cook normally, only without using this trash (COOK-KEY)

    2 days ago there was an update in this video from above and I can see that there is a solution

    Yes, it was possible to fix it with the help of one more colleague.
    It already works for me ?

    Well, I found a solution to this problem that does not require disassembling the equipment, I hope it's universal.
    After unfastening the key, I went over to the recently cooked menu.
    I clicked on the name of one of the recipes. Then the device prompted to connect the key.
    After plugging in the key, everything goes fine: the network has been successfully found.
    Then, when you click on the sync symbol, it takes a little longer than normal, but with success.
    Newly added recipe and others opens correctly.

    Hello, has anyone had a problem with the lack of the NETWORK CONFIGURATION icon?
    For me, it does not display, does not read the cook key, does not read the ABC medium. I can't connect to wi-fi

    The same for me, error c513
    Has anyone managed to do something with the rhyme?

    I managed on my own.
    I updated several times, reset. Eventually I took a Thermomix next to my router and it went straight away.
    I think there was too weak Wi-Fi signal before.
    It has been operating since then :)

    I solved the problem with the Cook-Key that was preventing boot-up.

    It was only necessary to disassemble the front panel (12 screws with T15 head) and clean with a spray for electrical contacts (WD40 Specialist Contact Cleaner) the connectors that connect the screen and the one attached to the motherboard.

    Harder said than done.
    While I was at it, I also sprayed the potentiometer.
    Cook-key problem solved and the potentiometer runs without skipping any more numbers.
    I've read that this procedure (10 minutes and 10€ for the spray) often solves also the problems of the scale (in this case you must also spray the contacts that receive those of the mug).
