    Hi all.

    I'm removing the housing of the pictured FM/TV socket to make way for a wardrobe sitting directly against the wall.

    Do these sockets have an electrical supply to them, and is there anything I need to consider to 'make safe' before it's simply plastered/covered over?

    Thanks

    Your TV or your power supply may send 5 to 12 volt up the cable to power a mast head amplifier, but other wise no power to sockets.

    That wall does look damp. I'd get that sorted before you leave a bare wood wardrobe up against it....
