SOURCE: pioneer m-770 will not turn on
you probably have a short in the circuit some where. you need to replace the transistor and look at all the solder joints to make sure there not damaged or cracked. i have the same amplifier and i replaced the fuse several times and it blew every time up until the last time when the 4 of the power output transistors blew. what ever you do do not try and power it on till you do all the things i told you or you will have sparks and fire. my mistake cost me my amplifier. but might help you get yours repaired

SOURCE: Yamaha P4500 service manual
one thing for sure Yamaha will not turn their back on their customers for support. What they normally say is that you contact your nearest service center for assistance. But you know you have a very good chance of getting a copy of the service manual since this is a very old model. i have the same amp being used in our church and yamaha service Japan has sent me by postal mail. technology nowadays is much different so maybe they can even send you in pdf format.
Write them by postal mail :

simply tell them you need the manual and you are doing the servicing on your own. No one in your area can help you with it.
anyway, what is wrong with your P4500, it's a good amp but sensitive. very good design, hard to troubleshoot if you're not familiar with Yamaha amps. The main parts you can not replace buying from a local store though you may get the same part numbers specially power/driver transistors. it always comes in complementary pair critically matched by tthe factory. i tell you don't get the replacement anywere but Yamaha only. Yamaha have made to order power transistors tailor made for this Amp. you'll find the same transistor number outside but when you plug the unit, it wont last and worst it bursts !!! be carefull. Very hard to scan a copy of manual for you, but if you dont get a reply from Japan you can email me and we'll try to find a way to send you a soft copy.

In bridge mode, the left and right amplifiers are in essence connected together. Typically, the speaker connections are to the positive connectors for each channel for this mode. WIth the speakers still connected, you essentially shorted the outputs to ground and smoked the output section. The unit will detect this now and not turn on the output section. Your unit is in what is usually called "protect" mode. This unit will require repair. Expect to have the output transistors replaced at the very least. I would estimate around $16-$40 for parts.
