My guess is that you have been playing with StandardForm and
TarditionalForm formatting. Parts of the expressions like t1(1 - t0)
are internally represented as t1[1 - t0], i.e. t1 is the name of a
function. You can see that if you change the format to InputForm
(using the Cell/Convert tomenu). So, what you must do is change the
square brackets in parenthesis using Finf and Replace.

Additionally, the syntax of your FindRoot is wrong. You cannot have to
starting values. If you rfepaired that and you tweak the starting
values and WorkingPrecision somewhat you get:

FindRoot[{eq0, eq1, eq2, eq3},
 {{t0, 0.5}, {t1, 0.6}, {t2, 0.4}, {t3, 0.8}}, WorkingPrecision -> 50]

{t0 -> 0.042950144337512339004069005918555574390189195213080,
 t1 -> 0.020794416091072412934056566904308358806687991905694,
 t2 -> 0.014356830943135308919996619330315956865348280462553,
 t3 -> -0.29047823800632023417669910887671278352651919604465}
