OK, I tried it again and detected some signal at the hinges (needle
deflecting ~1/3 of the way). The thing that confused me, is that the signal
is not constant -- the needle deflects once maybe every 2 or 3 seconds.
However, the leak is directed straight at the media PC. Should I try using
metallic tape to seal the crack?
