try putting some solder in the burnt part to make the connection.take your time and make sure iron is nice and hot before you start.

Looking at the top pic I can see where the problem is.
You left the leads exposed too much on the lamp and they shorted together.
The black tubing needs to cover the leads almost all the way to the board or when you mount it , the lamp will twist and short them again.
