No phono input
You will need a pre-amp with a RIAA curve. This is vital as the output from a vinyl disc is nothing remotely like flat. It is also at a very low level and will need to be boosted to go into your receiver.
RIAA pre-amps are widely available and you get what you pay for. Once you have bought one you should be able to plug its output into the aux on your receiver.

No sound from the speakers
check your connections if they are good another problem I could see possibly happening was if the wires for the speakers were plugged into the amp while it was turned on the wires may have touched together and blew the side out of your amplifier.

Sony STR-DG510 hook up with BDP-S560 no sound
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.
