Working with cannon ip 1300

Can i work with cannon ip1300 printer with only the black cartridge installed. recently i have refilled the colour cartridge but the printer was not recognizing the cartridge. hence i had no choice but to remove it.after installing the black cartridge the yellow light flashes 5 times which according to manual says 
Five flashes: The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized
Possible causes are as follows:
The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
The FINE Cartridge may not be the compatible with this printer.
Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment

please help

You need to have a black and a color cartridge installed to use your printer. That doesn't mean the color cartridge has to be full. You can have an empty color cartridge in the printer and it will work as long as the electronics are good on it so the printer can recognize it's there. You cannot refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers what cartridges have been in it so that it can reject refills (it sees the same serial number twice and catches you trying to not give Canon their money). You can use refills, but you need to get them from a refiller with a high turnover of cartridges so you don't get the same serial number twice. I recommend Cartridge World stores as they have high quality refills with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Can ip1300 print with just black ink cartridge?


AS far as I know you cannot put a black cartridge in the place of a colour cartridge it has to be a colour one. Check your printer properties to see if you can set your printer to work in black only, if you can then set it to black but leave the empty colour cartridge in place. This works for my 1800. Give it a try.

Printer does'nt work with non H P cartridges


It is pretty clear that you have a defective color cartridge. Return it to your vendor for a replacement. You may have some success cleaning the contacts as shown here, but most likely you need a warranty replacement color cartridge.

Make sure the cartridge is seated properly in the correct place. If the cartridge is a refilled compatible, throw it in the bin and get a new one. Approx 30% of compatibles can be faulty.

in the printer driver there is a option that whenever you install a new cartridge it has to be reset otherwise it shows the message the above you quoted. one more option is there that is change the chip of yellow cartridge and black, after doing this please whip circuits of the cartridge and printer carriage block before installing the cartridge
