If I only have one coloured cartridge inserted and none in the second slot, can I also print in Black?

Hello Kylie,

          It sounds doable, but actually, no! It will stop functioning once you remove one of the cartridges. You can change your printer options to Gray scale, to print black from the colour cartridge but it will still try to suck air from the second empty cartridge or the empty slot and could damage the head. So I would suggest that it is better to replace the empty cartridges with Ink, to avoid any damage.
