no, you need both cartridges in the printer , and if one is empty it wont continue, clever bit of forced marketing,

I have two Kodak printer and they must have both cartridges installed and have ink in them. Going back in my memory I think HP does the same thing.

Confirmed. My old 632C and 1210 need ink in all cartridges to continue printing.

Every printer I have used, and I've used a lot, have required all carts to have some ink to print.
Even the color lasers I've used stop printing if one cart goes out.
