You can clean the print head by using the following procedure from the troubleshooting section of the manual:

Take paper out of the printer
Take a single sheet and put it back in - upside down (i.e. shiny side down).
Close the door and wait for the sheet to eject.
Put all the paper back into the printer in the correct orientation (shiny side up), close the lid and print again.

I've discovered even better results by keeping the special blue sheet that comes with each paper pack. I run the special sheet through before I'm about to use the printer for the first time (after not using it for a few days), and also after every three prints. The result is much better printouts for me. The special blue sheet cleans and calibrates the print head. Just put the blue sheet in the paper tray at the bottom of the stack with the bar code facing down and close the lid. It will automatically eject.

How do I load ZINK Photo paper into a polaroid PIC-300 instant camera ?

You don't. The PIC-300 works with Polaroid 300 Instant Film. The Zink photo paper is for use with the Pogo printer.

Polaroid Paper Jam

I had the same promblem and this is how I solved it. If you have an android, screen shot the picture and crop as you desired. Then Press the share button and click bluetooth (Poloroid Zink) and dial in 6-0-0-0 for the password. Only put that in for the password. If it the password entry doesn't come up, that's okay. Hopefully this helped!

Where can I find instant films for a polaroid camera 600?

Polaroid stopped making instant film about 1 yr. ago. However, you can buy it off of ebay, or google it to find knock-off brands. I just reccoment getting a new digital camera. If you want the prints on the spot, polaroid makes a ZINK printer.
