Probably something is broken on the motherboard. Are you getting any display output? Have you let your console overheat?

Its a used console I picked up. Who knows what has been done to it.

I think the orange flashing lights means the xbox can't tell the video output chord is inserted properly. Try cleaning the contacts of the cord and input. I suggest using zippo fluid or isopropyl alcohol. I hope this helps you out.
