I hope you mean the room with three pistons. It took me a long time but I finally figured it. When you first come in the room, go to your right and jump on the piston, from the piston, jump onto the platform. Make your way to the other side using the piston again. The candle is in a room on the other side. Don't forget the jewel in the stairway and the idol on another platform.
