Computer to TV issue

Hey guys,
I bought a Macbook Pro off of CL with the sole intention to connect it to my TV and leave it there. It's a 2007 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 duo with the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT card. Here's the issue: I bought a DVI->HDMI chord but when I plug it into the tv it outputs this picture that highly saturated and extremely green.

Is the graphics card bad? If so, why does it output to the LCD perfectly? Or is it the chord? I didn't have much time to play with it and have been racking my brain all morning trying to figure it out at work lol. Any ideas?

try wiggling the cord or a new cord.

when my cord isnt plugged in all the way my entire lcd turns purple.

so its probably a connection problem.

Try different PAL or NTSC settings. PAL and NTSC are "sort off" the method of the colour transmission used.
