Hi, simply yes it would. The red light normally indicates no ink.

Hi Again, the green light is power on to the printer, when flashing it's busy. The red light I would think in your case is out of ink, I believe it will not print even if the black is ok, because it still uses the colour cartridge even though you are only printing in black. I'm sure if you replace the colour you will be up and running again.
