this I feel is a typical troubleshooting scenario. many a times lack of understanding of the topology of the circuit , component charactetistics may result in this. for example an opamp based  schmitt trigger may appear like a non inverting amplifier ( first impression on circuit topology) and if one has to torubleshoot a problem , lack of understandign of the topolgy may create more errors than a possilble solution.
