Peek in the sight glass, but I don't know if you could see anything worthwile if it isn't running.

And a possible new leak is the fill valve. It may have held just fine but when it was opener to fill it it may not have closed.

A quick check for any pressure in the system would be to quickly and lightly poke a valve and listen for any pressure coming out. Remember you will be releasing valuable freon and you may open a ozone hole over your car (close your sunroof) but it is a test that will tell you something, if you're inclined.
