Question about Sony STRDH520
Each time I play DVD on Sony Blue Ray DVD play thru my Sony STR-DH520 Receiver, I have to reset the receiver to factory default settings (holding power button to clear settings). How do I keep the factory default settings on receiver so that I do not have to go thru the same effort each time?

I went through the amp/receiver and used small star washers on all the grounding screws I could find including the one securing the transformer, cleaned dust off all circuit boards, checked output transistors and fuses, all OK.
Re Assembled unit and it worked OK.
I will buy a fan and fan it to avoid sourcing heatsinks for the previusly suggested IC's.
Thanks for the technical help, sure solved my problem.

STRDG520 requires that the audio is from the digital optical or the digital coaxial to have sound. Just add digital audio from blue ray player to the amp and your good to go.

The Sony manual for this receiver is not wrong, it is just a little misleading.
It does in fact use HDMI but ONLY for the HIGH DEFINITION video portion of the signal, as output from the receiver to your television. High Definition Multimedia interface carries both audio and video, however, your receiver is not decoding the high definition AUDIO portion of it and passing it through the HDMI, nor is it passing any form of multichannel audio through HDMI. So you can see why the receiver is no longer available for sale from the Sony website. The HDMI connection on your receiver is redundant unless you are not using a multichannel audio format, in which case you would be using either the TV speakers or connect an additional audio cable from the TV's "audio out" back into the receiver for external speakers.
All that should be done is use the HDMI cable from your blu-ray player connected directly to your TV. That will give you your picture, and possibly a better one since the receiver will no longer be in the signal path.
Then connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the receiver for your audio. You will then be able to have Dolby Digital and DTS surround formats.
Your service person was wrong.

Testimonial: "Thank you excellent report spot on with the hook-up. Will buy new receiver. John McMullan."
I believe what you want to do is as follows. Turn off the power supply. Hold the buttons 6, 7, 8. And turn on the power. The display should activate all options, then turn on and off a few times and finally display End. Then the memory should be reset back to Factory.
