Both ink cartridges will need to be installed in the printer in order to print, even if one of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Since your color ink cartridge is out of ink, you can disable the ink level detection function of the printer so that any low/out of ink warnings are not displayed on the printer and then continue to print.
To disable the ink level detection function of the printer, please press and hold down the STOP/RESET or RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer for at least 7 seconds, then release it. Once the low/out of ink cartridge is replaced with a Canon genuine ink cartridge, the ink level detection function of the printer will be re-enabled.
You can also set the printer to print using only the black ink cartridge. To do this, please follow the steps located here.
Hope this helps!
