I had the same problem with my Dell Optiplex 7010, power button was flashing orange. Here is how to fix the issue:

1). Turn off the computer.

2). Unplug the power & remove the computer case.

3). The Dell Optiplex 7010 has four memory slots, remove the memory, and switch slots.

4). Replace computer case and then reattach power plug.

5). Start computer!

That is it, a very simple fix! emoticon.Smile.title

Just found a machine with the same issue and tried reseating it, but no change. Moved the DIMM from slot 2 to slot 1, machine boots. Kinda odd that it would be in slot 2 don't you think?

One of the computer in my lab had similar problem. Here is what you need to do. Unlpug the system from the power.  On the back of the power supply there is a black reset button  next to PS LED. Hold that down while the system is not connected to the power for 10 seconds. 

Plug the power cable back on and restart the system.

Hello Joeytmann,

Amber LED blinking scheme – The pattern is 2 or 3 blinks followed by a short pause then x number of blinks up to 7. The repeated pattern has a long pause inserted in the middle. For example 2,3 = 2 amber blinks, short pause, 3 amber blinks followed by long pause then repeats. In order to isolate the cause of failure, refer the topic Power LED Diagnostics on page #53 in the service manual: http://bit.ly/1eewEEh

Hope this helps!

Thanks & Regards
