Welcome. Someone might be able to guess the issue, but if you don't get quality answers, feel free to review our guide on How to Ask and consider editing in a little details like what OS you are running, and if you have tried any of the general Time Machine troubleshooting steps listed here – bmike Apr 7 '13 at 19:16

In Time Capsule go to "Disk" then "File Sharing". Make sure "Share disk over the internet using Bonjour" is not checked. Don't know why but it caused this problem for me.
