No the machine uses some of the colour ink when printing faxes, mostly cyan.

We use our fax-1840C machine for black/white only, never for colour. we have installed both b/w and all 3 colour cartridges, but quite soon the fax says the (unused)colour cartridges are empty or dry and...

try by buying a new cartridges like the one you use before and clean first the print head to remove the smodges. see also you manual for compatibilites and instructions. ill find another solutions if this wont help you.

Cartridge problem of the fax.

Are you saying the fax appears to print but is blank or it does print but is not in a fax form but freestyle with no background format. Changing a cartridge will often upset the apple cart. see if the printheads could do with a clean. Make sure you reset ink level sif your unit does not automatically do this. Try a reset too by turning unit off, unplugging all cables, replugging all and turning back on. Post back if no good.
cheers,

In Use/Memory FAX after changing ink cartridge

I had the same problem - it would not print the faxes as the machine would not recognize the generic cartridge - I had to get the official Canon cartridge to get the faxes to print out of memory.

Printing Black Page

It sounds like you have lost the ground connection to the drum or housing.
I would suspect if you remove the cartridges and look carefully for the contacts on the cartridges and in the machine you will find either a dirty contact, a spring off, or it is possible a coincidence that one cartrigde failed.
Printing black is caused normally by a loss of ground contact or a high voltage arc.
Check the contacts and make sure everything is seated properly, and replace a cartridge
