When was the last time it DID turn on?
Are there any little lights on the set that blink when you plug it in?

    Can you tell me what the model number is and about how old it is?

    Unplug it from the AC. Let is sit about 20 minutes. Try to power it up again.
    If that doesnt work, unplug it from the AC . Let it set 20 minutes. carefully take the back off and , where the AC cable comes into the unit, see if there is a fuse nearby. MOst likely 3/4 inch long glass or ceramic with shiny metal ends. If it's glass you can tell if the wire element inside is good or POOFED. If its ceramic , you'll need a continuity tester to see if it's still good or not. If a fuse died that may be your only problem.

    AND check for lots of dust collected inside the set.
    Vacuum out with a plastic tube end attachment

    Without seeing the set , I'd say the high-voltage section that runs the proj. tubes has given up the ghost.

    Check with the zenith consumer site on who in your area knows about those. Then ask the tech how much to fix the high-voltage supply.

My zenith big screen tv is out of focus and we cant find any master focus control. How do we fix the focus?

It is unusual for a rear projection to be out of focus since the projectors are fixed. But, it is common for the projectors to be out of alignment, in which case the picture will look like a bad 3D movie of yesteryear.

Go to the setup options / menu, look for the ALIGN option, follow instructions on screen.

I have a 1994 zenith big screen the picture is showing really dar

It could be that the picture tubes have gone down on emission, there is a prcedure that can be tried to bring up the overall brightness but it is just possible that you will loose some picture quality. If it's a 1994 projo tv i am thinking of the three crt system, a gray scale alignment would probably correct the dark condition in your picture, again depending on how far gone is the emission in your picture tubes, if your projo tv is the dlp system, the bad news is that you could be needing some light engine repair. The color adjustment is possible with the availability of a service manual or in the case of the dlp system, light engine repairs or replacement are available from some on line stores.

Tv wont turn on

Unplug it for 20 mins then try again plugged in.
It could be something as simple as an inline fuse but dont try opening the set EVER with it plugged in.
