You will have to cut solder /splice the 3 wires Be sure to dress the splices after soldering with electrical tape. That's the only way if the CRT socket is sealed. Just don't mix up your wires, They should be color coded. Let me know if you need any additional help.

This is the HT leak from the LOPT . You can remove the back panel after switch off and on switch on - in a dark condittion- will be able to see the sparks shorting. If so switch off and let the HT drain off. There will be high voltage on the CRT and so care must be taken not to touch the anode as HT might flow. Use a dry cloth to clean ,use petrol to clean all dirt and static dust, clean the LOPT.
clean the HT leads. Use some insulation if the leak is more specially from the transformer. If the clicks are still heard without switch on then it is internal leak within the LOPT and it must be replaced,

Picture on screen has gone to only 1/4 of screen with strong line through picture.

This sounds like the OPT or LOPT has blown or weak ( OPT = Line output transistor. LOPT = Line output transformer.)
This job should only be carried out by a professional engineer. I would take it to your local TV repair person. Hope this helps.

I would suggest you change your LOPT, or even the lopt. LOPT = Line transformer . lopt = line transistor. usually a au808 If you do not understand this, u should not be in the back of this tv.

I plugged the wii into the socket and it showed a spark in the outlet and then I put in the video output and it didn't show anything, then I checked with another video cable and I plugged it to the tv ...

if one point hits the power before the other it will cause a strike that can burn out circuits in the unit frying them to the point of total shutdown this is called lopt striking. these components will need to be found and replaced by a servcie tech

there is no quick fix in regards to this problem sorry.

always remember no matter what your plugging into a wall socket always make sure the switch is turned to off first to stop lopt striking

The service person who told you so is correct. EF series LOTs are of old National Kit, and is not available now. If you have a chance to get it from somewhere, it will cost more that RS 800/= ie about $18, and with that money you can purchase a new kit for your TV, provided your TVs picture tube is good. Just do as you like in this case. Todays TV kits are assemled and aligned, comes with more than 250 channels and includes all accecories, like remote handet, fitting material and so on. OK.

If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. Generically speaking anything in the horiz deflection, hv development area will cause a no pix symptom, also a problem in the signal processor section, video river and output section as the crt/socket assembly. I would also check the lopt transistor and probably the fuseable resistors around the lopt.
