|I'd take a guess that the door hinge light seal has seen better days.
If correct, as light seal kits are relatively cheap, and unless you've already replaced the rest, I'd do all the seals on the camera and the mirror bumpers. It's not as scary a job as you'd think.
Try and find a supplier who supplies two sets (usually for not much more than one set). The stress of getting it right first time is then removed. I have used a Japanese supplier who does exactly this, but his name escapes me at the moment. I'll try and dig it up for you.
Just one point to note as you mention the subject yourself. Even if you find it is not the light seal, replacing them should add value to the camera of at least the cost of purchase.
Good luck, and I hope the incident hasn't put you two off trying again.
