Hi Silverhead... Thanks for your time.
Do you know if is there any kind of "factory defect" for a certain group of HD500?, i am asking because i have seen many posts over this issue.

There is no factory defect that I am aware of for this issue. I have not seen many posts about it - but I'm not saying that you haven't seen them.
If you want to plead your case you should contact Line 6 directly. Either open a support ticket or use the Contact Us button below.

I have had a similiar issue with my POD HD for over a year. However, mine is sporadic and does not happen every time. About once or twice a week my bank pedals do not work for some period of time. I have run the test as well and it shows that the switches are not working. However, if I re-power or even run Line6 Edit they will often come back to life.
At first I thought that the switches were probably going bad but now I have a different oppinion. I think that the switches drive the processor internal to the HD and either the connections to the processor are flaky or a part between the switch and processor are not always functioning due to cold/heat ect.
I cannot say wether you have some bad hardware or not but this is another point of information for you.

I am starting to develop some unreliability with my FS5 at present and also my bank-down button 'double-clicking' when I press it. Sometimes these things can just relate to dirty contacts within the switches. Eventually dust and gak work their way into the floor-processors and cause problems. I am finally starting to think that wisdom lies in having a brain (Pod Pro) and floor-control (Midi controller or Floorboard) so that I can just replace the floor bit when it inevitably croaks.
My warranty went adios a while back so I may try to clean the switches myself, see the thread here -->http://line6.com/support/thread/85461 . Not recommended if you are still in warranty though.
The final option is to replace the switches outright ... http://line6.com/support/message/378293#378293 but this is more involved.
