i have this camera and the door that holds the film in will not stay closed because the plastic piece has broken at the release point. Which piece is it that I need to replace?

That's a bit of a bugger. The piece that's broken off is most likely the little "hook" on the "door" (the proper name of this "door" would be "back").

Since this little hook is integral with the back, you'd have to replace the entire back.

If you still have the piece that has broken off, it may be possible to glue it back in place, but you'd have to reinforce it with e.g. a small piece of aluminium sheet cut from a soft drink can or something like that. Use cyanoacrylate glue (otherwise known as "superglue") and make sure the pieces are clean and fit perfectly before applying the glue. You need only a tiny drop.

The EOS 30 is a film camera and therefore does not have an A/V Port, since it does neither Audio nor Video. The socket near the bottom on the grip side is for a wired remote control.
