The bulb itself has three tubes and has four pins that go into into a holder. The lamp used to have a different bulb that is no longer made and the company that sold the lamp is no longer in business . I ended up buying a new bulb and base.
What I cannot do is connect this base to the two thin wires leading out of the lamp. I think they go into two holes in the base, but when I put them in there, they come out. There is no way for me to connect them to anything. The base is a solid piece of plastic. I tore apart the old base and see there the wires went into some kind of clip.
Does anyone know how to make the correct connection that will stay after I put everything back together?
