I had the same problem, and it seems to have corrected itself. I too, installed a new "45" black cartridge and got the message to remove and check color cartridge. After I removed it and cleaned it the message stayed on the display for about 5 minutes and then asked me to "align cartriges." After I aligned them I had no problems.

No, in general all current inkjet printers require the installation of a color cartridge even if you want only black printing.
(If you had an old cartridge "Empty", you might be able to purchase a resetter (Epson) and set you printer to print in black only.)
You can, set up your computer to print in black only by selecting Mono printout in your print set-up.
There are a few Canon printers (Older) that used to print in Black or Color only printing....but no longer available......

Take the cartridge out and clean the contacts off with something (ie: pencil eraser, your thumb...) That worked for me! I couldn't find a solution anywhere even after chatting with online tech support from HP. Quick and painless! I hope this helps...

clean the connector between the cartridge and the brownish part in the printer where the cartridge touches. it might be dirty and thus not enabling the connection with the black
