Customer Question

I would like to cut my TV ac cord and then re-mend it. Is there any harm in doing this? Will it detract from the TV picture quality?
JA: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?
Customer: one moment.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: this is not a big name TV brand. It is a brand new 32" flat TV. I just need to feed the cable THROUGH the wall... I want to drill a very small hole, but of course the PLUG END will not fit. May I cut the end off... and then REMEND it?
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this?
Customer: Are you still replying to my question?
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: no thanks.

Initially, yes; doable, can be safely done.

And if done properly would have no effect on the TV's performance.
