Yes it will work in black and white.
You can also change the settings and keep only black and white if you want to save the color cartridge.
Its available in Printer settings--Options--Black&White.

on the inside of the top cover on the left side when the door is open there is a little switch youll see a little metal tab 5/16'wide push on this and see if the error clears. if it does this can be adjusted. if not pull the cartride out there are two sensors on the right inside one close to the front this is an optical sensor blow this out with canned air if you dont have an air compressor. then further back inside there is a two pin sensor make sure that if you push in on these that they dont stick. next there is a smart chip on toner caartridge that lines up with those pins when its installed clean these contacts. doing all of these things usually geets rid of the problem. no parts have been replaced recently right? check the connector to the logic board this is theeonly 3 pin connector that has black and white wires. this sohlud fix your problem

that can be happened with some problem of cartridge or cartridge holder.
if you can check the printer with your older empty cartridge, and you can see
the different error message with that , it says your printer is OK.
and have some problem with your cartridge.and need to replace it.
if you can see same message with your old and empty cartridge,
you can clean both of cartridge the connecting pads ( in printer cartridge holder and
back side of the cartridge ) using by IPA and check again.
if had corrosion or some ink swallowed problem , can be clean with that.
after that if you got same result, you need to check your cartridge with
another printer or your printer with another good cartridge.

Testimonial: "I put in the older empty cartridge, and the error message stopped. At least I'm only out of the price of a new black cartridge and not a new printer."
