How Remove Crestworth One Astro Base?

This base doesn't work, and I've changed the fuse and bulb, and checked the switch so figure a wire must be dislodged.Can anyone advise on how to get into it?On similar lamps I've just knocked the plastic base out gently by pushing down with a wooden spoon handle, but this one appears to be stuck fast?Thanks…See More
