Open following links for images of 3-gang and 4-gang single-pole switches.
With the 4 gang, just subtract one of the switches.

If you have a 3-way switch, or outlet in the box, then add a comment with more exact information about what wires you are trying to connect, what color wires you have, and what you have tried so far. This will narrow down the possible answers and speed help.

All 3 switches should be grounded, plus one box should have a ground wire to the box ground screw, all ground wires into the 3 gang should be connected together, run a 4th to the metal box and one to each switch ground.

Your switch has 2 wires, and 2 brass screws, and new switch will have same.
Connect either wire to new switch.
Connect bare ground wire to green screw.
Turn power off, remove screws that hold switch into box, pull out switch, take photo of wiring, install new switch.
If wires are pushed into back of switch, then use small screwdriver and push into slot to release wire.

How to connect three gang switch to control three lights, using two 1mm double core


What is 1mm double core?
Following image shows example 120Volt 4 gang switches with outlet.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Single-pole-switches-in-4-g.jpg
Each 120Volt electrical box has one Hot wire. This is true for ceiling and wall boxes.
Normally in a gang box, the Hot wire jumpers across all devices in the box.
Some switch boxes do not have Neutral wire. Neutral wires are usually white, and are twisted together and covered with wire nut and shoved to back of box.
Open following links for typical 120V and 240V circuits in US.
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html

Feel free to add a comment and describe wiring, and voltage.
For example if hot wire arrives from one of the lights.
Describe the wires that you have, and what each wire goes to for best possible answer.
