What your experiencing is relatively new in the gaming world. It's known as the Yellow light of Death. It's the RROD for the PS3, and it's typically caused my a crossed connection or melted solder. You can fix this yourself, there are some very good instructions on how to do this at http://www.instructables.com/index , or you can send it in to be repaired by Sony. (Your still under warranty, I hope.)

AC Adapter has a blinking orange light...


Try moving everything to a different room on a different electrical circuit (as in electric panel outside your house). You might have too much load on that circuit for the plugs in that room. You could try unplugging everything except tv and xbox too.
