Re: Tv blew up
Sounds like the typical power supply or sweep problem in the zenith chassis. depending on how old this set is will determin if its even worth trouble shooting or taking it in to be looked at by a pro. If your not experienced with tv repair i would call a repair shop or take it in as tv sets have high voltage stored in them even after they have been unplugged for a while. If youve tinkered with tvs in the past or know someone who does zenith tvs are made for a complete chassis exchange. you can Call PTS Corp at 1 800 844 7872 and see how much an exchanged referbished chassis would cost and go from there. Good Luck

You have several bad capacitors in your TV. There are in the deflection side of the board. I think there are three here. And check the vertical section, as there are three bad caps. You will need an ESR meter to find and replace these capacitors. The older Zenith are known for shut down due to weak and bad caps. Hope this clues you into the fix. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!
you most likely blew a fuse the only "reset" is to unplug the t.v. and leave it unplugged for a few mins, then make sure that you hold down the power button to drain the power out of the t.v.then turn it back on.... only other reset sequence is for removing the parental code
