I think your Adapter is showing Orange Light flashing
yes when it is plugged into the xbox it flashes orange when normally it just stays lit without flashing, however when you unplug it from the xbox it doesn't flash
Are you sure that your power supply are free to ventilate?
yes there is not obstruction
You tried reconnecting the power supplY?
yes i have unplugged the plug and replugged back in and even have tried to plug into a different electrical socket
Is it turned ON for a long time?
do you mean is the adaptor or xbox? The xbox is always powered off however the adaptor is usually left plugged in
Orange Light may occur due to overheating.
The orange light is always on when on standby but when the xbox powers up it will then turn green, but it is flashing when plugged into xbox and xbox will not power up
The Orange light flashing means there is no problem with your Xbox console . Remove the power supply form the wall outlet and turn it after some time.
The problem is with your adaptor
ok i'll try turning back on later

A flashing orange or yellow light means that your console is fine but instead there is something wrong with your power supply. It means that it’s not getting enough power for some reason.
This basically means that the console doesn’t detect the AV pack.
Here’s how to fix the problem: 1. Unplug the power supply from your Xbox 360 (the console on the back) 2. Also unplug the power cord from where it connects to the wall outlet 3. Unplug the power cord from the Xbox 360 power supply. The actual brick power supply. 4. Wait 5 minutes 5. Reconnect everything one-by-one and double-check that it’s a snug fit 6. Also try plugging it into another wall outlet 7. Plug it directly to the wall outlet without and extension cords or power strips.
This should fix the problem. If it still gets the orange or yellow flashing light, try it again. If you get the same result than something is wrong with your Xbox power supply. Contact Xbox 360 customer support to get a new power supply. Good thing it’s not the actual console itself.
If you have the warranty then it will help you to replace the power brick free of cost.
Best of Luck sir.
