I don't think this is a problem with Mavericks or your computer. It looks more like a problem with your Time Capsule.Did it but nothing has changed.
In TC preferences it shows up as "Backup disks' above the 'Available Disks' but if I click on it, I can only 'remove' it.
On the TC itself the amber light keeps flashing although I have recently updated it.
What do I do now?

I see. What if you just disconnect the TC from everything and do the hard reset form the link I gave you. Wait for it to restart. The light will flash amber since it can't find a network, but the wifi will still be on. The on your Mac click the wifi in the menu bar and look for the TC in the list and join that network. This will not get you on the Internet, but the Mac should connect by wifi to the TC anyway. Now start Airport Util and see if you can select the TC and configure it.My TC is only connected via wifi and I have already reset it more than once. I've also tried connecting it to the adsl box with an Ethernet cable but it didn't make any difference. I live in France, so am using the SFR network with their so called Neuf Box like the one on the second picture if you follow this link:
How long has it been like that? That first backup takes a while to get going usually.So far nothing has happened as it just hangs saying 'preparing backup'
Can you open the TC drive and at least look at it in Finder? That way you know the system can see it.About 4 h.
It's not the first backup as I have used it for a couple of years without any problems but it's the first one since mid November as I was away.
Hold the command and R key when booting and that will take you to the recovery console. From there, launch Disk Utility and do a repair disk. Then reboot normally.No it doesn't show up in finder. It used to but not any longer.
It does show in Disk Utility though.
Man... you just are having bad luck with this thing!I started repairing the TC but unfortunately my power cord decided to give up on me, so I have to try again once I've got a new one.
Thank you so much. The same to you and yours.In the meantime I hope you have a lovely Christmas
