Using wrong Ink dye

I ran out of Light cyan. Are there any detrimental effects if I use a Cyan cartridge to replace it. I'm in quite a rush. I could even print in black and white so that that the Cyan dye is never used.

You cannot switch a color cartridge with another,

If it will actually fit, it will damage the internal print system such as the tubes and printheads, will damage your printer hardware and cause print quality problems in the future.
