I've been struggling with this light bulb for hours.
I tried to un-screw it to the left or right but it didn't rotate at all.
Please help me. enter image description here

Some types of compact fluorescent (PLL, PLT) have a push-in fitting. Try pulling straight out.

P.S. While you are working on that, you really ought to fix that loose earth/ground connection with a bolt, nut, washer and maybe a crimp-on ring-connector. Or something similar. —

P.P.S. broken compact fluorescents may need special cleanup

  • It looks like there may be a push in release tab at 1:30 o'clock on the base. Try pushing that tab in and pulling the base out. Use a garden glove to protect your hand – Jim Stewart Jan 3 '17 at 15:33
