    If it turns orange only sometimes, then there is a good chance that the connector from the charger to the Mac is broken. If you remove it and have a close look, there are five tiny pins in the connector. You can push them in, and they should come out in an even line. If they don't, that's the problem. Try borrowing a charger from another Mac to see if that fixes the problem; if it does, buy a new charger. (I assume all white MacBooks are long out of warranty by now).
