Question
QUESTION: i have hp desk jet 1050 printer.
as my original color cartridge became empty,
i removed it and
i refilled it with black ink.
can i install this cartridge along with
my original black cartridge ?
( printer works very well with the `single cartridge mode')

ANSWER: sure it will work.. but your colors will be off because you have two black cartridges... this is true if your cartridge is in normal mode...

now in your case...
now your machine won't detect the second black cartridge in single cartridge mode because this is meant to detect the cartridge in the black cartridge slot...

QUESTION: sir,

     i mounted the color cartridge ( filled with black ink ),
     but,
         printer doesn't print document and shows message,
     `no cartridge'... should i try it again, i mean removing,
     and mounting both cartridges again and try to print ?

Answer
at this point...  I would clean the metallic section of both print cartridges with some warm water... I would then try remounting... if that does not work... then I would replace the cartridges with new ones... if that does not work then I would replace printer...
