Actually, time has an answer for that.
You see, time has a distorted flow depending on your current velocity, I'll keep it simple and just say "the faster you go, the slower time moves". Going faster than light would reverse time.
So let's say that you went back in time, and stopped you from making a Time Machine. What would happen?
Nothing. THAT version of the Time Machine would vanish, but yours wouldn't. Why?
We can say time is like a video. It has to buffer. So when you change something, it creates a new version of this video, and it has to rebuffer.
Now two timelines are happening at the same time. You, with the time machine, and you without it. The fourth dimension simply ignores the new changes, so technically, math wise, you don't exist in this reality. NO ONE from this time or existence would be able to see you, starting after the time it took you to tell yourself not to build the time machine has elapsed.

but, if he never made the machine, he would have never gone back in time and the problem would still be there, so he would go back in time to fix the problem... and so on.

Really though, this is assuming that there's only 1 timeline that is infinitely changeable.

All this paradox talks about time travel , yes they say to think outside the box but you guys are way beyond the box , you are in another dimension then the box is . easy explanation, when you travel in time you become "Time Traveler" and when that happens , you lose connection to your past , you no longer depend on it , the string that was connecting you to your past self is ripped , so anything you do during your travels will only effect your past self and in no way effect you , the time traveler .

It's a classic paradox for which I can imagine the answer being that the timeline splits off at that moment creating an alternate dimension.
