the printer (HP Color LaserJet 3500) refuses to print anything until
the supply is replaced. Isn't it really possible to print monochrome
documents if one of the color (eg, cyan) cartridges ends?

No. It uses the color inks to make the black look 'blacker'. No colors...
no black. Not specific to HP... most other manufacturers do exactly the
same thing. If you want grayscale it's best to use a laser printer.
