Not sure about your particular model, but most printers work on a 'how much ink' device. When a cartridge is nearly empty or empty there will be a warning message or symbol, at that point the printer might stop working.

If as you say, you don't use the colour, then just leave the colour cartridge in-situ. But the printer might do a 'cleaning' process, which will use up some ink from both or either one of the cartridges.

Why not run the printer to a empty cartridge, and see what happens. Or alternatively buy compatible cartridges or fill your own?.

HP tend to be quite bad about putting up an error message or, as in my case, a flashing light notifying me of low ink. There is plenty of ink left. I tend to wait till the print gets a bit faded then I'll renew the ink cartridge.

You should also find in the setting menu the ability to print just in black.
