Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, and sorry you're having problems. Not sure what you're asking us here. Are you simply looking to see what it costs to buy another SR5002, or is there something else in the question I'm not understanding?
The blinking light indicates either a hardware failure or that the unit needs to be reset. Have you tried connecting ONLY the Marantz to power- with nothing else connected to it (no speaker wires, no HDMI cables, etc.), to see if it will power up?
As far as replacement cost- the SR5002 has not been available for several years- it came out in 2007, and is a discontinued model- so it would not be available for purchase unless you find something used on Ebay or the like.
A comparable unit would be the SR7008- which can be purchased brand new at the link below for $1000 (which is $600 below the MSRP currently):

Getting back to the blinking light, there's no resets aside from disconnecting the receiver and all peripherals from power to see if it's an external short (shorted speaker wire, HDMI cable, etc.) that's causing the problem. Aside from that the Marantz would need service- with the most common cause of this being a faulty processor or power supply PCB, and given the unit is 8 years old, and parts are scarce this is not a cost effective repair unfortunately.
Do you need further assistance with anything?
Plus it's 8 years old and the cost of repairs would be a good chunk towards a replacement.
Sorry for the bad news.
