I turn the projector on it begins to make noise like it is trying to turn the lamp on, but it does not turn on. The green light flashes on the top, then it turns to orange. I have replaced the bulb 2 times already and nothing helps.

make sure the colorwheel is spinneng. if it isn't, the lamp won't strike. if the colorwheel is fine, check the lamp for bulges, black spots, fogging or flaking. replace if necessary. if the lamp is fine, replace the ballast.
Please describe the status of the LED indicator. No LED would indicate a failure of the power supply. I can help you with that.
Flashing red would indicate a fan/lamp problem. Some lamps fail prematurely before the lamp hours are up.
If it is the power supply, no lights at all, I can get you running again. These units have fragile power supplies that can burn out with the slightest power surge. A UPS goes a long way to save future headaches.
If your colorwheel and fans do not start spinning up, then it's not a lamp issue. The lamp will only strike if the colorwheel is already spinning. It's a safety feature to prevent burning the colorwheel. If your projector is completely dead ie no fans or colorwheel, then it's either the power supply or the controller board that has died, in that order.
