You need both cartridges. It is a paradox that you need both cartridges to even scan on the mfp,s

This Printer has a feature that enables you to specify the most appropriate ink cartridge among installed cartridges according to an intended use.
When one of the ink cartridges becomes empty and cannot be replaced immediately by a new one, you can specify the other ink cartridge that still has ink and continue printing. check if you have the right type if cartridge for your printer model.

The iP1200 is a model that can print only with a Color FINE Cartridge (CL-41).
By installing an optionally available Black FINECartridge (PG-40), the iP1200 can print using both Black and Color inks just like the iP2200 and iP1600.

Not print and not scann without colour cartridge


All cartridges must be present before the printer will operate. Essentially black is obtained by printing all colours together. Some makes/models of printer will allow black printing only for text printing. This is a printer 'PROPERTIES' function and you will have to seek this out by reading the manual fully.
