Make sure the light is turned off long enough that the lamp is cool, and unplug it. Remove the lampshade and unplug the cordless table lamp. Remove the lamp socket shell from its base. The socket shell often have a cover around it is rotated in place and can be untwisted by hand. Pull the socket shell out the base. Because it is attached to the cord, it may help to push the cord further up the lamp from the bottom.
Remove the wires from the outlet. They are usually screwed in place; you need to use a screwdriver or putty knife to unscrew them. If the old lines were tied in a knot outside the base, tie them in a knot-like. Insert the wires into the socket and screw them down, making the right wire goes to the right screw. Connect the cover of the socket shell, place a fresh bulb in the socket, replace the lamp shade and connect the lamp to test it.
