If you really want an answer to this you will need to provide at a minimum the model of the printer, the model of the cartridge that you are supposed to use and the one for what you want to use instead. – EBGreen Feb 20 '13 at 16:31

No. While they may be physically identical, modern ink cartridges have electronic interfaces with the printer that may not interface properly with a different printer than specified.
