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.

Rob, it may be more cynically stated that "the customer always lies."  Or, at least, "the customer never tells the whole truth."  Troubleshooting such problems almost always means you have to be a Missourian: "Show me" or it didn't really happen.

Here's another good example of why it's important to dig down to the real problem. What appears to be the problem at first may not actually be the problem. We're seeing this again and again in the Sherlock Ohms posts.

Perfection is a laudable, but ultimately unattainable, goal, even for the world's most successful consumer electronics company. You know the hits; here are Apple's all-time greatest misses.
Siemens' new version of Imagine Lab was designed to help the automotive and aerospace industries meet environmental mandates.
Belden and Secomea have developed a remote access system that gives users a plug-and-play connection to plant assets.
Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
