I have a picture of a circuit that is leaking current from 4 double AA batteries. I wish to post a question regarding what procedure to use to debug the circuit to find the current leak. Is this question on topic? If not, how can I frame the question to be on topic? Thanks.
It's good that you have asked on meta first. Here's the disposition towards troubleshooting questions.
Questions on the repair1 of consumer electronics, appliances, or other devices must involve specific troubleshooting steps and demonstrate a good understanding of the underlying design2 of the device being repaired. See also: Is asking on how to fix a faulty circuit on topic?

p.s. Troubleshooting usually requires dialog and brainstorming. StackExchange Q&A format is good for wiki-style information, but the Q&A format is not the most graceful for dealing with troubleshooting requests.
