Seal small freon leak in copper tube (coil?)

I can see a tiny leak in one of the many copper lines that run about the coil. Since it is visible I was hoping to patch it without replacing anything. Would a water proof epoxy or something similar work in this situation? Is there something made especially for this? The only thing I found online was something that you run through your entire system for $100+? Any ideas on a cheap way to fix this?

Someone who knows what he is doing might be able to fix it with a torch. The sealant that you are talking about is ify at best and could cause more harm than good and would still require someone to apply it and charge the unit. There is no "cheap" fix for a leaking coil that I've ever seen.

If what you see is really a leak, then you must have no freon in the system and therefore it doesnt work. Is this correct?
