Some levers will also affect the surrounding levers, but this will only happen on the fourth lever starting on either side. You will therefore have to make sure that the levers along the north-south "faces" correspond to those of the east-west "faces". The exact procedure to follow will be as follows: the two north levers must not be touched. Of the four in the center, hit only the two on the east side.

Suppose we create a "grid" of plates, where the top plates will be 1, 2, 3 from left to right, then 4, 5, 6 in the middle and 7, 8, 9 at the bottom. Place an object to associate with the fireball on 1, 2, 3, 6. Place an object relating to the spikes of ice on 7, 8, 9. Then place an object relating to the lightning bolt on 2, 3, 4, 5.
The portal will then open. Collect everything you can, so you'll have to deal with a boss.
